INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WEHT) — Hoosiers may get a little more time to vote if a bill in the General Assembly becomes law.
The House Education Committee is scheduled to hear a bill on Thursday that would keep polling locations open until 8 p.m.
Currently, polls close in Indiana at 6 p.m.
The bill would also allow vote centers to stay open later by majority vote of the County Election Board.
Current law requires a unanimous vote from the board to keep polling places open late.
