The Vigo County Commissioners voted yesterday to approve touch-screen voting for the next election.
RBM Consulting will supply the new equipment.
Pre-election training, hardware rental, and the initial licensing agreement will cost the county $400,000 in 2014. The county did have to break a contract with the current election equipment supplier and that might mean penalty fees.
The Vigo County Election Board might yet approve moving away from traditional percents to voting centers. Two public meetings on that issue must be held before a decision is made.
