(BEDFORD) - The state is implementing special measures to assure each citizen is voting in the appropriate precinct., Indiana's Statewide Voter Registration System (SVRS) Public Information Site is a uniform electronic data containing voter registration records for all of Indiana's 92 counties.

The SVRS is linked to the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles database and the Social Security Administration database to help verify voter registration application. The system also exchanges data with the Indiana Department of Health and Department of Correction to assist local election officials in their efforts to remove deceased and incarcerated voters convicted of crimes.

If your voting information is incorrect, the voter registration staff will check and correct the placement of voters who were unknowingly registered in the wrong precinct.

The system has recently provided Lawrence County Clerk Billie Tumey and her staff with an updated and accurate GIS mapping data in order to ensure voters are casting their vote in the right precincts. She says several address were affected within the county.

Any voter residing at an address that was affected by the update will receive a new Voter Registration Acknowledgement Card in the mail.

Tumey emphasized that while a voter's precinct may changed, their status as a voter has not.
