INDIANAPOLIS — Under new voting rules in Marion County, you can vote anywhere you wish regardless of where you live. Just as long as you can prove you are in fact a resident of Marion County.
One of the places you can vote is in the home of a former president: Benjamin Harrison. President and CEO of the Benjamin Harrison Presidential site along Delaware Street in downtown Indy, Charlie Hyde, said they’ve been a polling site in Marion County since 2014.
“We’ve already seen some people come out specifically wanting to vote here at the presidential site,” Hyde said. “Just because they recognize that resonance of being able to vote in the former home of a president.”
Though Hyde does recognize that being a voting center does give the historic site a lot more exposure, he said the main thing is getting involved to make sure people are able to exercise their civic duty, which is voting.
The polls are open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. today. Early voting turn out was up this year compared to the last two years.
