County officials gathering information on voting centers


Follow The Republic:


COLUMBUS, Ind. — Bartholomew County residents could cast their votes at centrally located vote centers instead of designated precincts as early as May 2014 if the concept secures unanimous approval from the Election Board.

But a lot has to happen for that idea to become reality, said Jim Holland, chairperson of the Bartholomew County Election Board. A committee, which assembled in January to consider voting centers, is gathering information and attending meetings to see if the idea is worth proposing to the public.

One of those meetings occurred Monday afternoon, when Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson visited Columbus to explain the concept in detail and to answer people's questions about how it might change the voting process.
