[SOS] Secretary of State Connie Lawson’s statement on Marion County adopting vote centers

Entry Description

INDIANAPOLIS (Jan. 24, 2018) – “Congratulations to Marion County on their decision to become a vote center county. There are now 37 counties that have adopted the vote center model.

As a state senator, I authored the legislation to allow counties the ability to move to the vote center model. As Secretary of State, I have encouraged counties to move to this model. I am a proponent of vote centers because they provide voters with flexibility to vote anywhere they want on Election Day and provide additional early voting options. I believe the vote center model is a key in giving Hoosiers more access and opportunity to vote. 

I’ve heard from voters all over the state that they love the convenience of voting at any location in the county and the additional early voting opportunities. I believe the voters of Marion County will appreciate this flexibility too.

In addition, vote centers save taxpayers money. They reduce the cost of purchasing voting equipment and voting locations.  I applaud the work of Marion County leadership for developing a vote center plan that will serve the county well. It takes lots of compromise and hard work to develop an innovative plan that provides convenience to voters and potential costs savings to the county.”
