La PORTE — Despite a concerted effort by advocates in recent weeks, southern La Porte County will not be getting an early voting site for the upcoming election.

On Friday, the La Porte County Election Board failed to approve a motion establishing the Wanatah Town Hall as a voting center for early absentee voting, which will take place Oct. 6 through Nov. 2. Although two of three board members voted in favor, the measure required unanimous consent to pass.
