Where do I vote?

Recently, the Floyd County Election Board unanimously adopted a Vote Center Plan with new election machines and e-poll books from the election company RBM. Vote Centers have been successfully piloted in several Indiana Counties and we are excited to join them.  The Vote Center concept allows voters to have more flexibility in where they vote. The County Commissioners have designated vote center locations, and voters can vote at ANY vote center. Early voting sites will also be available. Voters still have the option to vote absentee by mail or by Travel Board.
