“As Indiana prepares for the 2022 election season, voters will have more convenience in casting their ballots than ever before,” said Secretary of State Holli Sullivan. “Vote centers allow people to go to any polling location in their county. I congratulate Jackson County clerk Melissa Hayes and the Jackson County Election Board on developing and adopting a plan that makes voting easier and more secure for their community.”

A vote center is a polling location where any eligible voter in the county may go to cast a ballot. Vote centers can reduce costs for counties, increase turnout, provide local election officials more flexibility, and improve overall convenience for voters.

Jackson County will have seven vote center locations across the county for voters to use on Election Day, starting during the 2022 Primary Election.

In Indiana, 54 counties use the vote center model. Click here to see the full list.
