AUBURN, Ind. (WFFT) - DeKalb County is looking at implementing voting centers and eliminating assigned precincts for Election Day.
DeKalb County Clerk Holly Albright said there are currently 39 precincts voting at 18 different locations in the county.
She said it is becoming harder to find the needed workers and locations in the precinct that complies with federal voting location standards.
"They have a right to vote too. And we have to make it convenient and easy for them. If we don't, we are opening ourselves up to a lawsuit," said Albright.
Her solution is having 10 unassigned voting centers across the county.
This means anyone could vote at the most convenient location.
Some of the proposed locations are already technically voting centers with several precincts.
"All those machines have all those ballots on it for those precincts. There's no long lines. they run very smoothly," Albright said.
Albright said she hopes to have voting centers approved in time for the primary election in May.
She said the county needs feedback from residents to determine if voting centers will be a good fit for DeKalb County.
That can be found online or by contacting the DeKalb County Clerk's office at 260-925-0912.
