Vote centers would fix election mess

Mail-in ballots are not viable in La Porte County. Hundreds of voters were disenfranchised in the primary. Hundreds of calls went unanswered requesting ballots; ballots were mailed late; and 20% of travel board ballots weren't collected. There were 285 ballots received after the deadline, and of 5,618 ballots sent out, only 4775 were received. This means 843 voters were disenfranchised.
