INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — State officials say about 275,000 Indiana residents have requested absentee ballots for the June 2 primary election.

That's more than five times the total who voted absentee in the 2016 primary.

That number announced Tuesday is about 50,000 more than a week ago.

Requests for a mail-in ballots, technically known as absentee voting by mail, must be received by county election offices no later than May 21.

Ballots must be received by a county election office no later than noon on Election Day, June 2, to be counted.

Nearly 48,000 Hoosiers voted by mail in the 2016 primary.
