TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - It's important to have a voice in your community, which is why voting is so important.

The Vigo County Election Board held a meeting Thursday afternoon to discuss 2018 voting.

Earlier this year, a lot of confusion was drawn to the fact that some thought the board was trying to have fewer voting centers.

However, the board said that is not the case.

"We set up the voting centers and the polling locations. We strategically did that so that we would enable more people to vote. We're trying to make the voting environment more conducive to much more voting," said Brad Newman, election board secretary.

In 2016, Vigo County had 19 voting centers. Next year, they are looking at the possibility of having more than 20.

There has been talk of opening voting at Indiana State University. However, as of right now, board members just aren't sure that will happen.

The voting schedule has not yet been passed. It was tabled at the meeting Thursday.

The board plans on voting at a later date.

There will be changes made to the proposed voting schedule. 

Those changes may include voting times and locations.
