Do you hate waiting in long lines on Election Day? We do, too! To help voters navigate Election Day successfully, Vigo County Public Library is collaborating with the Vigo County Clerk’s Office to launch Vote Vigo.

Vote Vigo, a non-partisan organization which seeks to make voting easier for Vigo County residents, will be providing regular updates on the lines and wait times at all voting centers. To see Election Day wait times, as well as important voter information, follow us on Facebook and Twitter. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer for Vote Vigo, please check out our volunteer page for more information.
