HAMILTON COUNTY, Ind. — About 88,000 Hamilton County voters will have a new polling place for the June 2 primary, county leaders have announced.
The new locations are spread around the county and include churches, schools, and neighborhood clubhouses.
“We’ve recently made efforts to remove polling places from area schools,” said Hamilton County Clerk Kathy Williams. “But with schools out and some of our original locations choosing not to host this spring due to COVID-19, we’ve had to bring a few of those schools back into the fold.”
Williams added: “These new locations also have the added benefit of providing better accessibility, and since there will be more locations, they should also help limit lines and improve social distancing on Election Day.”
Bright yellow postcards will be mailed out this week to notify voters of their new polling place, according to Williams. Voters can also check their polling place at indianavoters.com or hamiltoncounty.in.gov.
