Lawson said in 2012 there were seven counties that adopted vote centers and the number is increasing to 15 this year.
“Counties are discovering that vote centers are more cost efficient,” she said. “I don’t see it becoming mandatory in the near future.”
Lawson said if 75 or 80 of Indiana’s 92 counties adopt the vote center concept it could be made mandatory. She said in some rural counties there is not the needed Internet access.
“Right now it is a local decision,” she said.
Madison County has not voted to adopt vote centers for the election process.
