INDIANAPOLIS -- Hoosiers continue to have a strong showing at the polls as we head into week two of early voting in the state. 

October 12 was the first day of  early voting in Indiana and residents who won't be able to cast their vote on election day are making sure their voice will still be heard. 

The Marion County Election Board says 987 people walked into the clerk's office on day one to vote, surpassing the number of first day voters for the last two presidential elections and those numbers have stayed consistent every day. 

After the first six days of early voting the Marion County Election Board reports that voting totals are up 43 percent from 2008 and 26 percent from 2012. 

Early voting runs through November 7, the day before the election.

You can cast your early voting ballot at the Marion County Clerk’s office Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.

They will also be open each weekend prior to the election from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. And they will have longer hours the weekend before the election from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m.

The last day of early voting is Monday, November 7, from 8 a.m. until noon. 

Anyone who is registered to vote can vote early.
