Indiana State University will have a voting center after all.
Earlier this month, the Vigo County Election Board decided not to use the campus during this year’s municipal election. A group of area organizations and concerned citizens held a press conference at Campus Ministries Friday to urge the board to reconsider.
Tuesday, the board voted to keep the campus voting center active for the upcoming election.
“With the success of the 2018 Vote Center, Indiana State University is happy to host a vote center for the upcoming election, and have extended an invitation to do so for every election,” said Nancy Rogers, vice president for the Division of University Engagement at Indiana State University. “I look forward to engaging in more conversations with the Clerk’s office, along with representatives of the ISU Student Government Association, in the near future to make sure the voting center runs smoothly for citizens and election workers. For the 2019 election, as with any election, we will be focused on providing opportunities and information for students to register to vote and engage with local candidates and issues.
During the meeting, a new voting center at Honey Creek Mall was also added to the list.
