Interest in mail-in voting is so high this year that the Johnson County Election office is for the first time ever getting ready to send out ballot applications to every voter in the county.

Election Commissioner Connie Schmidt said Thursday the office will promote the mail-in ballots through social media and other outlets because of voters’ concerns over exposure to the novel coronavirus.
