In 2017, I advocated to the Indiana Election Commission and local Election Board to improve early voting and Election Day polling places in La Porte County. Despite these efforts, major defects in the voting system threaten the validity of our elections and the security of our community.
School safety has become a top concern for those across the country and within La Porte County. There should be no barriers to entering a polling place, but there should be barriers for unknowns to enter our public schools, who may come into contact with our children. Sex offenders, who are normally barred from being within 1,000 feet of schools, are permitted to enter polling places, even if they are inside a school building.
