Starke County Election Board Expected to Discuss Vote Centers this Morning

The Starke County Election Board’s newest member will take her seat during this morning’s meeting. Marcia Bedrock was appointed earlier this month by Starke County Republican Party Chair Dave Kesvormas, to replace Peg Brettin.

During today’s meeting, board members are expected to discuss a potential switch to vote centers for next year’s presidential election. The county commissioners passed a resolution last week pushing for the change, while some county council members have also voiced their support. A switch to vote centers typically means fewer polling places, but it would give voters the option to cast their ballot at any of the county’s locations.

This morning’s Starke County Election Board meeting starts at 9:30 in the second floor meeting room in the Starke County Courthouse. It was originally scheduled for yesterday, but had to be changed due to a scheduling conflict.
