TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Vigo County is working on a way to bring the voting closer to you, and the effort could save thousands of dollars for the county as well. It's all based off a new system of "Voting Centers".
In the past, when Vigo County voters head to the polls, many are limited to just one location, but that issue may be out the window for residents.
The idea takes the voting centers and spreads them out around the community. You could be voting at stores, malls, banks, and even restaurants.
Long be gone the idea of only voting in one specific precinct. "If the idea is to get people out to vote, I'm hoping that this is truly the opportunity to get people out to vote," Vigo County Clerk Dave Crocket told News 10.
The county hopes this new plan would increase voter turn out and eventually save the county money.
According to the county, similar sized locations across the country have cut their costs by the thousands.
The plan also takes voting centers out of schools, which Crockett called a potential safety issue.
