St. Joseph County Election Board proposes to overhaul voting system

ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. -- Come fall, St. Joseph County's voting system could get a big overhaul!

The Election Board is considering a switch to voting centers.

Right now, you can only vote in your designated precinct.

But under the new system, voters would be able to choose from about 25 centers.

"I think it's possible that we can still do it this fall. It would have been great if we had vote centers in place so that could have been our practice session," said Murray Winn of the St. Joseph County Election Board.

There is still a lot of numbers to crunch before the Election Board submits a proposal.

But the cost could be anywhere from $300,000 to $5 million.

It depends on whether current machines can be upgraded, or if the county has to buy new ones.
