VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - A voting plan is finally in place for Vigo County after the Vigo County Election Board met Tuesday afternoon to make their final picks of voting centers.

The biggest news out of the meeting is that for the first time ever, Indiana State University will have its very own voting center on Election Day.

The Election Board was looking for large, convenient spots for early voting centers. Five early voting centers were chosen for Vigo County.

But, the board also approved a voting center for ISU.

On Election Day only, students can stay on campus and have their voices heard. Sophomore Chase Meehan attended most of the Election Board meetings.

He really pushed for the voting center to get young people more civically engaged!

"…I just knew if we could get a voting center at ISU it would be an easy opportunity for a lot of students to get engaged for the first time,” he explained.

In all, there will be 21 voting centers across Vigo County.

The board struggled to finalize their plan because of budget and equipment restrictions. But, they hope the choice given to voters will mean more people will turn out.

And remember, the Indiana May Primary is Tuesday, May 8.
