Once again Switzerland County will vote in the May Primary Election and the November General Election through the use of the Traveling Voting Centers.

For the upcoming primary, these centers will be available around the county beginning on Thursday, April 21st and will continue until Monday, May 2nd.

As in the past, any registered voter in the county may go to any of the traveling voting centers to cast their ballot. Voters do not have to wait until the center reaches the township in which they live in order to vote. The traveling centers give voters with varied work schedules the opportunity to vote at their convenience. For example: a voter living in Pleasant Township who works in Kentucky may choose to go to the voting center when it is in York Township because of the schedule.
