Residents raise plenty of questions about voting centers

COLUMBUS, Ind. — Bartholomew County officials are considering implementing centralized voting centers for future elections, but residents raised a range of concerns about the idea at a public meeting addressing the issue.

Residents posed questions about political gerrymandering of voting center locations, ensuring a sufficient number of voting machines in certain neighborhoods and technical problems the Internet-dependent voting centers might experience.

If approved, voting centers would allow county residents to cast their ballots at their choice of 17 locations, rather than be restricted to only one polling place under the current precinct system, Bartholomew County Clerk Tami Hines said.
