Despite Public Notice Error in posting of the date of public hearing Lawrence County Election Board conducts meeting today

LAWRENCE COUNTY - MARCH 14, 2024 - The Lawrence County Election Board working on a deadline went ahead with today's public hearing and meeting to approve the Primary Ballot for the May 7th Primary and pass resolutions needed for this year's election.

The public rarely attends the meeting of the election board unless a complaint has been filed. The meeting was only advertised on the Lawrence County Zephyr with the inaccurate date and time based on the posting on the door of the Lawrence County Voter Registration.


Lawrence County Clerk Amy Voorhies notified the Lawrence County Zephyr this morning of the change of the date of today's meeting. The Lawrence County Zephyr videoed today's meeting partially.

According to Don Robertson, Democrat Lawrence County Election board member, by Indiana law all media needs to notify the election board in January in order to be contacted about all public hearings held by the election board. No local media made those requests and the county election board met the 48 hour notice by Indiana law.


In other business:


  • Approved 16 and 17 year old to work the polls in the year's election

  • Approved a new voting center at Springville amending the 2010 voting centers.

  • Approved only using the south entrance of the Lawrence County Courthouse on election day.

  • In need of Democrat election poll workers contact voter registration


Note: The editor of the Lawrence Zephyr is a candidate in this year's election.
