Primary Election in Indiana is May 3rd this year and Marshall County Treasurer, Deb VanDemark explained a few changes in the election proceedings this year at the Plymouth Lions Club. This year the county is made up of 12 vote centers and will be open from 6AM – 6 PM. There are 29,000 voters in Marshall County who will be able to vote in the Primary Election May 3rd. With vote centers, you will now be able to vote at the center closest to where you work, or have plans to be at for any reason, instead of having to vote in your home precinct. Another change is the way you sign in. Instead of signing in on a large paper form, you will sign on what is called a Poll Pad…very similar to an ipad which will have all registered voters listed in Marshall County. The 12 vote centers are as follows: Bourbon Vote Center at Triton High School, Argos Vote Center at the United Methodist Church, Plymouth City West Vote Center at the National Guard Armory, and County West Vote Center at Pretty Lake Church Hall, Plymouth East Vote Center at the Knights of Columbus, Plymouth South Vote Center at the Marshall County REMC, Lapaz Vote Center at the Lapaz Fire Station, Bremen North Vote Center at the Bremen High School, Bremen South Vote Center at the Bremen Missionary Church, Tyner Vote Center at the Tyner Community Building, and the Culver Vote Center at the Culver Depot.
Indiana Lions District 25-G Governor, Vic Fischer was also on hand to update everyone on the Leader Dogs Kennel Project. District 25-G has raised over $30,000 not including the Grant of $10,000 for 4 kennels. Fundraising is in place to complete five and hopefully six kennels. District 25-G is now the 1st District in the nation. Each kennel services for 30 years and provides 200 leader dogs a year. Plans are in place for a fundraiser to complete the project by selling South Bend Chocolates.
In other business future fund raisers were discussed; the first will be Saturday May 14th with White Cane Day, and May 21st it is hoped that the Plymouth Lions Club will be serving pancakes and sausage at the Farmer’s Market in Plymouth.
