LaSalle Makes The Move To Electronic Voting

LaSalle is making the switch from mail-in voting to e-voting for the next municipal election.

Residents will be able to cast their ballot either online or by phone.

Mayor Ken Antaya says, while it may be more convenient, he doesn't expect an increase in voter involvement. "I mean you either have an interested voter or you don't. I guess it depends on the race, which office it's for and who's running. I suspect that we'll probably see about the same return in the 2018 election but once the polls close it should instantaneous as far as results."

Voter turnout in LaSalle in 2014 was 50%.

The next vote takes place in October of 2018.
