Elkhary, Ind. - The public weighed in on potential technology changes in voting, as Elkhart County moves toward vote centers. 24 vote centers would replace the 117 precincts, and allow voters to cast a ballot at any location.
The technology required for the switch consists of electronic poll books and touch screens.
Election board officials walked people through the technology, explained the cuts in Election Day spending, as well as the expedited voter registration.
One major concern voiced tonight was that of ballot safety, and making sure there was no way an electronic system could be tampered with.
"It always is, that is why you have these public meetings--to hear from the public," said Arvis Dawson of the Elkhart Election Board. "Safety is always an issue, that is why we are talking about paper ballots...integrity of voting held to the highest standard."
Four more informational meetings on the vote centers are scheduled this month.
