MESSAGE FROM LA PORTE COUNTY CLERK HEATHER STEVENS
June 16, 2023
Citizens of La Porte County,
Vote Centers have been a reality in Indiana elections for well over a decade. However, it was not until last year that La Porte County was able to secure the equipment needed to make that transition. Pros and cons have been weighed out by Election Officials, Party Leaders, Poll Workers, and most importantly voters. We believe that this is the right time with the right leadership for La Porte County to make the change to Vote Centers.
The move to Vote Centers will provide La Porte County voters with the same consistency that they have come to enjoy during the Early Voting period of elections. Voters will be able to visit any of the Polling Locations on Election Day, giving voters much more access and convenience than traditional precinct-based voting allows.
Many have spent their time and energy to assist in making this change as successful as possible. I am proud of the work that everyone has put in. I am especially proud of the nonpartisan manner in which everyone involved displayed. It has been refreshing to see so many people from different parties aiming to achieve the same goal of making voting easier and more convenient for the voters of La Porte County.
La Porte County Circuit Court Clerk
Secretary of the La Porte County Election Board
