(LaPorte, IN) -There’s been a change in the strategy to get more people to vote by mail here in LaPorte County due to COVID-19 concerns at the polls. Originally, applications were going to be sent to all registered voters. Now, postcards will be sent.
The cards will inform people how to get a vote by mail application. Officials say it’s a way to save money and time since the primary is less than three weeks away.
LaPorte County Commissioner Dr. Vidya Kora said the vote by mail applications can be accessed online or by placing a phone call to the county clerk’s office. The LaPorte County Election Board made the change on Friday and its decision was supported Wednesday by the commissioners.
