Changes are coming to how you vote in Marion County.

Russell Hollis, deputy director for the Marion County Clerk’s office, says the county will transition to “vote centers.”

“It kind of does away with those precinct boundaries so that any location that’s open on election day, any registered voter, can vote at that location,” Hollisa says.

The change will increase access to voting and make the process easier for residents.

"You still have the option of going to your typical polling location," Hollis says. "But if you want to go to a different location that’s closer to your job or day care or closer to your children’s school, you can go to that location as well.”

The transition to vote centers will start with the 2019 primary election.
