Grant County Election Advisory Board Looking For Public Input.
In order to gain public feedback we will be holding a public meeting on Thursday, August 27th at 6 p.m. at College Wesleyan Church at 200 E 38th St., Marion IN 46953.

Or you can attend the meeting virtually by going to VOTEGRANTCOUNTY.NET and clicking on the link.

In the Fall Election for 2020 Grant County will be moving to Vote Centers as an alternative to traditional, neighborhood-based precincts. This move will allow voters to cast their ballots on Election Day at any Vote Center in Grant County, regardless of their residential address. Indiana is among more than sixteen states across the nation that allows for Vote Centers.

The switch to Vote Centers will allow Grant County to offer more convenience to citizens of our county allowing them to vote near home, near work, school or any of the eleven centers proposed.

The Election Advisory Committee needs your input. We have gone through and selected 11 proposed sites. They are:

During the entire process VOTEGRANTCOUNTY.NET will be a NEW portal that will act as an information center to the public and will be updated during the process. It will feature information on HOW TO VOTE, WHERE TO VOTE, Provide Feedback, and much more information.
