Cass County, Indiana Election Board reminder about 2024 voting process

Last Updated on April 7, 2024 by Cass County Election Board

The Cass County Election Board would like to remind all registered voters that there will be major changes in the way elections will be conducted this year. To comply with Indiana law the Cass County Election Board made the following changes:

  1. When voting in person at any time BEFORE Election Day, a voter will still use the existing equipment to fill out and print their ballot on scannable paper, but the voter WILL NOT be able to personally scan their ballot.
  1. Instead of scanning their ballot, the voter will be required to place their printed ballot in an envelope, seal it, sign the envelope and then give it to two poll workers who will sign the envelope as well. The voter’s E-poll book slip will be stapled to this envelope.
  1. The Cass County Election Board will then secure all envelopes until Election Day when they will be opened and scanned into the election scanning machine that counts the ballots. As in the past, the paper ballot will be retained as a backup to that process and for risk limiting audits.

If you would like to see changes made to how our elections are conducted you can reach out to State Senator Stacey Donato at 1-800-382-9467 or 1-317-232-9400; Representative Ethan Manning at 1-317-232-9619 or 1-800-382-9841; and Representative Heath VanNatter at 1-317-232-9643 or 1-800-382-9841 and suggest to them to get rid of the dead voter law.
