INDIANA – Secretary of State Holli Sullivan has accepted Decatur County’s plan to become a vote center county.
“I am proud to see another Indiana county offer choice and flexibility to voters by adopting vote centers. People in Decatur County will no longer have to ask, ‘Where is my polling location?” because this plan will allow voters to cast a ballot at any vote center in the county,” said Secretary of State Holli Sullivan. “Thanks to the hard work and leadership of Clerk Adina Roberts and the Decatur County Election Board.”
A vote center is a polling location where any eligible voter in the county may cast a ballot. Vote centers can reduce costs for counties, increase turnout, provide local election officials more flexibility, and improve overall convenience for voters.
Decatur County will have eleven vote center locations across the county for voters to use on Election Day, starting during the 2022 Primary Election.
In Indiana, 56 counties use the vote center model. Click here to see the full list.
