Election results to be viewed at fairgrounds


Hamilton County election results are typically viewed at the Hamilton County Government & Judicial Center, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the viewings will move to the Hamilton County Fairgrounds to ensure proper social distancing.

Voting will run from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. June 2. Public viewing will take place in Halls A and B of the Exhibit Building, and doors open at 6 p.m. Enter the building through the southeast door. Parking lot signage will direct the public to the correct entrance. Display screens will be placed at each end of the halls. Several round tables and properly spaced chairs will be placed as well.

Because there will be a large volume of absentee ballots, it is possible counting votes will take several days. Workers will count absentee ballots from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. June 2. They will then count election day votes as election inspectors start delivering tally cards from polling locations.

“If we still have absentee ballots left to count, we’ll complete those Wednesday,” County Clerk Kathy Williams stated. “We will reopen Halls A and B Wednesday from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m., if necessary. If mail-in ballot processing carries over to Thursday, the public watch area will reopen again at 8:30 a.m.”  

Hamilton County has until noon June 12 to certify election results. For more, visit hamiltoncounty.in.gov/222/Current-Election-Information.
