League of Women Voters Cass County observe polls

League of Women Voters weigh in on voter identification, registration cards and voting operations

(Continued)

LOGANSPORT —

Cassidy said voter identification hasn’t been an issue, but there have been a few people who haven’t been registered. 

Most voters who come to vote are registered, but one registered late and two came without being registered, Cassidy said. 

Myra Vanecek, a member of the League of Women Voters, agreed there weren’t issues with identification, but she said a couple of people didn’t bring their blue registration cards. 

Reed said one person forgot their registration card on Thursday and offered to go back home and get it, but was able to fill out a form at the vote center. 

Vanecek observed the Cass County Senior Center and said the crowd of voters was steady. She predicted half of registered would vote early and the others would vote on Election Day. 

“I thought it went smoothly,” Vanecek said. “There seem to be more people voting at the senior center than before.” 

Reed agreed with Vanecek. 

“Poll workers know what they are doing and helped explain the process to voters,” Reed said. “People have to get used to the machines not having a touch screen, but once they are instructed and reminded, they are fine.” 

Reed was at the fairgrounds and said an excited, first-time voter came with his grandparents to vote. 

Ingram said she observed the Royal Center Town Hall on Thursday. 

“The workers were helpful and they were steady all day,” Ingram said. 

Cassidy said there were a few people that complained about the machines, but like Ingram and Reed said, there were workers to help out. 

“So many people have said they love the voting centers,” Cassidy said. “It’s cost effective and I think people want to vote because this election is going to be close and they want their vote to count.”
