Don't forget to register to vote, deadline soon

Voters will go to one of the polling locations around the county to cast their ballot instead of their normal precinct. Voters will go to one of the polling locations around the county to cast their ballot instead of their normal precinct.

It's just over a month from Election Day and state officials are reminding voters to be sure they're registered on time.

On Monday, Secretary of State Connie Lawson was in town reminding voters to register before the deadline of October 9.

This is the first national election using Vanderburgh County's Vote Centers.  Voters will go to one of the polling locations around the county to cast their ballot instead of their normal precinct.  

Lawson was a co-sponsor of the vote center bill and hopes those centers will encourage more people to come out and vote on election day.

"It's important for people here to remember that you don't go to your old precinct to vote. You go to your vote center. Vote centers are receiving great response. Voters love them because they're accessible and convenient, and the poll workers like them as well because they stay busy the entire day," Lawson said.

To register, you can go to the county clerk's office or register online.
