Adoption of vote centers could come Friday

A decision that could save taxpayers an estimated $20,000 annually could be made by the Boone County Election Board at a noon Friday meeting.

At the meeting, in the clerk’s office on the second floor of the Boone County Courthouse in Lebanon, the board could vote on whether to use election centers during the 2014 primary and general elections, cutting from 22 to eight the sites where ballots are cast on election days. The meeting is open to the public.

There are now 53 precincts, requiring 270 poll workers, County Clerk Penny Bogan said Monday. Each precinct requires one inspector, two clerks and two judges.

If the board — Bogan, Republican Party Chair Debbie Ottinger, and Democratic Party representative Jim Whelan — unanimously approve vote centers, the voting machines for those 53 precincts could be concentrated at the Boone County 4-H Fairgrounds in Lebanon; Boone County Senior Services, Inc., Lebanon; the Zionsville Town Hall and Zionsville Presbyterian Church; Traders Point Christian Church, Whitestown; the Thorntown Public Library; the Advance Christian Church in Advance; and the Elizaville Christian Church in Elizaville.
