New voting concept will increase convenience and reduce confusion for voters

 

(Big Spring)- Effective March 11, 2019, Howard County has officially gain status as a
vote center county. Howard County will be one of 40 plus Texas counties to switch to the
vote center program.

 

“I am so very excited that Howard County has decided to make the switch to vote
centers,” Election Administrator, Jodi Duck said. “It’s taken a lot of planning and
examining from all those involved, but the benefits to the voters of our county will be
well worth the effort we have spent implementing the new process.”

 

Simply put, vote centers are just the same polling locations we currently use for
countywide elections but will allow any eligible voter in the county to vote their
designated ballot anywhere in the county. They eliminate the need to know which polling
places are specified for certain precincts. This allows the voters in the county more
flexibility regarding where they cast their ballots. Vote centers throughout the county are
linked by secure internet connections with an electronic poll book that is instantaneously
updated as voters are checked in and verified. The election voting equipment, as always,
will not be connected in any fashion to the internet and will be completely secure. In
addition, three more locations will be added during the city and school board elections in
May. Keeping the locations the same for every election during the year will help to
eliminate the voter confusion on knowing where they need to go. The choice is left to the
voter.

 

“It’s your voice, now it’s your choice.” Election Administrator Jodi Duck said. “With the
new equipment and new Election Day procedures, voting has never been easier.”

 

The Election Office will hold a come and go open house for the public to come see and
demo the new equipment, May 25 th at 4:30 till 7:00.

 

The City and School Joint Elections will be held on May 4, 2019 with early voting
beginning April 22, 2019 at the courthouse. The Election Day vote center locations:

 

Ryan Hall/St. Thomas Church
605 North Main, Big Spring

 

First Baptist Church
705 W FM 700, Big Spring

 

Dorothy Garrett Coliseum
1001 Birdwell Lane, Big Spring
