A new voting procedure will greet Wabash County voters during the 2018 General Election.

The procedure was demonstrated Tuesday morning, Oct. 2, to members of the Wabash County Election Board who, during the demonstration, also completed the required election machine testing.

“Before, when you went to the polls to vote, the judge set the machine,” County Clerk Elaine Martin explained. “You know, we are a Vote Center county, so any voter in the county can go to any location and all of the precincts are on the Infinity Panels.”
