INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Absentee voting is starting for Indiana’s May primary elections.

Secretary of State Connie Lawson says voting will begin Tuesday and last through May 5, one day before primary election day. Voters casting their absentee ballot in person have until May 5. If they mail it in, requests for a ballot must be filed by April 28.

In 2012, 120,000 voters cast absentee ballots. Lawson said Monday she hopes that number increases this year. She is also encouraging voters to use new voting centers.
