Vote Center Bill Clears House Committee

Vote Centers are a step closer to being used throughout Indiana.

The House Elections and Apportionment Committee approved the bill, which already passed the senate.

Tippecanoe County Election Co-Director Heather Maddox says people like the option of voting at the supermarket or close to work instead of near their home.

Supporters say the system lowers costs and increases voter turn-out.

Under the measure, counties would have the option of implementing Vote Centers, but it requires the unanimous vote of the county election board following a public hearing.
