Vigo County leaders say they need to cut down on voting centers to save money.

Forward Together says this is voting suppression.

They say with more voting centers, more people will coming to the polls.

"Voting is basically the essential right of our democracy. So, I think it's really important that regardless of the cost...that's something you should invest in," Chase Meehan said.

They invite anyone who would like to participate to attend.

The Vigo County Election Board will vote on the centers on Thursday.
