(Richmond, IN)--Only about 27% of registered Wayne County voters cast ballots in the last midterm election four years ago. But, based on absentee voting, that’s on pace to increase this year. Close to 600 people have cast ballots locally already through either mail-in ballots or showing up at the Wayne County courthouse. Early voting will continue this week. On Saturday, the first voting center opens at the Kuhlman Center. Three other vote centers across the county will open Monday of next week.
