The Dubois County Election Board held a public meeting Tuesday night at the Dubois Middle School on Vote Centers.
The vote centers are becoming more common throughout the US and Indiana currently has at least 12 counties that have converted to them and several more are exploring the option.
If the plan goes through, seven vote centers would replace the many polling locations in Dubois County during an election.
Dubois County Clerk Bridgette Jarboe gives us her assessment of how the meeting went last night:
She said that the handful of attendees asked only a few questions related to how long the process to sign in would take.
Jarboe said it would take longer to vote than it would to sign in on the poll books.
Three other meetings are scheduled in January. They are:
- Tuesday, Jan. 21, at Jasper High School
- Thursday, Jan. 23, at Southridge High School in Huntingburg.
- Tuesday, Jan. 28, at Forest Park Junior-Senior High School in Ferdinand.
All are scheduled for 6:30 p.m.
The new vote centers could be in place before the primary election in May.
