Indianapolis community leaders are meeting one final time tonight (Monday, June 24th) to discuss the future of voting in Marion County.
Clerk Beth White says the “Voter Experience Project” is all about how to upgrade voting equipment and procedures in the county. White says current voting equipment is fine, but it‘s also twelve years old and upgrades will be needed.
White says they haven‘t discussed costs connected to upgrading equipment. She says the project is still assessing needs and concerns involved in the overall process.
After tonight, White says the project will hold a series of public hearings and gather comments from residents about the types of voting procedures and equipment they think works best for the county.
Hearings are set to begin in September. White says they‘ll start to examine the costs associated with the project in early 2014.
