VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - Vigo Election Officials have created 18 voting centers around the county.
The vote centers would replace the long-standing precinct voting sites in the city and county to improve the voting process.
However, the move to electronic poll books, voting terminals, and a vote scanner plus the cost for the transition is still undecided at this point.
"We are pretty much right on target and uh give a few more months and hopefully we will be ready for the public meeting," said Dave Crockett, Vigo County clerk.
A cost estimate for a new electronic system has not yet been made available.
The vote center in the courthouse annex will be open two weeks before election.
Seven more locations will be open for eight days before the election: former Indiana State Police Post on U.S. 41 South, Booker T. Washington Center on South 13th Street, Baesler's Market on Poplar Street, West Terre Haute Community Center, Valley Grill on North Third Street, Kroger North on Fort Harrison Road, and New Life Fellowship Church at East Glenn.
Ten vote centers will be open only on Election Day at the VFW Post 972, Sandcut Fire Station, Blackhawk Fire Station, Pimento Fire Station, National Guard Armory on Maple Avenue, Prairieton United Methodist Church, New Goshen Fire Station, Vigo County Public Library, Wabash Valley Fairgrounds and the Riley Fire Station.
The Vigo County School Corporation has announced that all VCSC buildings will be closed by 6 p.m. Thursday. All athletic events, both home and away, will be canceled and postponed until a later date.
