Indiana Legislature Gets New Voting Board

by Sammy Edmonds posted Jan 22 2014 3:31PM
The Indiana House has brought the way it casts its votes into the 21st century. But the transition has been bumpy.
For 37 years, the House used a voting system wired to lights next to each member‘s name at the front of the chamber with green for YES and red for NO. The problem has been that replacement parts are no longer available for the system.
The new system replaces the old boards with L-C-D screens which display a "Y" or "N" next to each legislator‘s name to show his or her vote.
