Voting centers open in Vigo County


TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – A new era begins this week in Vigo County.  The Clerk’s Office unveiled the concept of voting centers throughout the county.  One of the eight locations is Baesler’s Market on the east side of Terre Haute.

After a slow start, things ran more smoothly at the voting center at Baesler’s Market.  A lot of planning and preparation went into implementing these centers.  With anything new and that involves computers, you’re going to have growing pains.  A minor glitch Monday morning delayed some voters here as the center first opened around 10.

That glitch was quickly fixed.

The idea behind voting centers is simple.  All Vigo County voters can vote at any of the eight locations, including Baeslers, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m all this week.  This added convenience will hopefully get more people to vote in our elections.

“They can go anywhere, that’s the thing.  They don’t have to go to one specific spot.  They can go anywhere and vote,” said Vigo County Clerk Dave Crockett.

Here are the eight voting center locations:

Vigo County Annex, 127 Oak Street, Terre Haute

Baesler’s Market, 2900 Poplar Street, Terre Haute

Old State Police Post, 7751 S. US Hwy 41, Terre Haute

Valley Grill, 2170 N. 3rd Street, Terre Haute

Booker T. Washington Center, 1103 S.13th Street, Terre Haute

New Life Fellowship Church, 7849 Wabash Avenue, Terre Haute

West Vigo Community Center, 127 W. Johnson Avenue, West Terre Haute

Kroger North, 2140 Ft. Harrison Road, Terre Haute

 

They’ll be open again next week, opening at 8 a.m. instead of ten.  They’ll also be open on Election Day from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
