You can vote at the following location Tuesday:

-Owensboro Sports Complex

-Yellow Creek Baptist Church Gymnasium

-Bellevue Baptist Church Gymnasium

-Hines Convention Center

-Towne Square Mall

-Owensboro Christian Church

The courthouse is not a voting location on Election Day.

If you’re elderly, there will be a lot of walking required at the Towne Square Mall poll due to COVID-19 safety precautions. There will be a wheelchair accessible.

Election officials say they are going to leave drop boxes open on Election Day until 6 p.m. unless a polling place with a dropbox location closes before 6 p.m.

If you’re in quarantine and need to vote, have someone pick up an application at the election office for you. Make sure they bring an ID.

You can then fill out the application, then bring it back to the election office where they will give you a ballot for the quarantined person. Then fill it out, and have the designated person you picked to bring it back to the election office by 6:00 p.m.

The Daviess County Clerk’s Office says they believe lines won’t be as long Tuesday due to large early voting numbers and more voting locations.
