Voters will have more choices where to cast their ballots this fall.
Thousands of Johnson County voters are expected to cast their ballots for president, governor and local school boards in the upcoming election, and the county wants to cut down on the time it takes to vote.
To do that, the county has added three places where voters can cast ballots, and each will have more voting machines. The additions are an adjustment to this spring’s overhaul of the way the county had voted for decades.
In May, the county started using vote centers, where voters could cast ballots at any of 19 locations across the county. But now, the county wants to add vote centers in anticipation of more voters and possibly longer lines in November.
