GOSHEN — Elkhart County residents curious about a pending transition to vote centers can get their questions answered at five public meetings coming up this month.
The Elkhart County Election Board will introduce the public to vote centers, a new voting format that would allow people to cast their ballots at any polling location in the county regardless of where they live using electronic poll books. The transition could happen as early as this spring for Elkhart County’s primary elections.
County clerk Wendy Hudson will make a presentation and staff will be available to answer questions about the equipment and how vote centers operate.
There will be five meetings in January, all beginning at 6 p.m.:
Jan. 13: Elkhart County Administration Building, Room 104, at 117 N. Second St., Goshen
Jan. 14: West Park Pavilion, 500 N. Nappanee St., Nappanee
Jan. 21: Middlebury Town Hall, 418 N. Main St., Middlebury
Jan. 27: Elkhart City Council Chambers, 229 S. Second St., Elkhart
Jan. 28: Elkhart County Public Service Building, 4230 Elkhart Road in Goshen
