Editor’s note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the primary election has been rescheduled for June 2, 2020. Porter County Elections & Registration keeps updated information on their website and will make decisions about VoteMobile activities as needed.
To encourage the people of Porter County to vote, and to make voting more accessible to all citizens in the upcoming election, Steindler Signs & Graphix worked with the county to wrap a vehicle for the new VoteMobile program enacted by Porter County Elections & Registration and Porter County government officials.
“The Porter County Elections & Registration office uses buses like these to both promote the election and even offer mobile voting to those without transportation,” said Jessica Parks, Director of Financial Operations for Steindler Signs & Graphix, LLC. “The Elections & Registration office provided the design and color layout they wanted, and we were able to fulfill their wishes while also adding our own personal touch.”
VoteMobile was made possible when Porter County Commissioners approved the Porter County Elections & Registration proposal in February to purchase a vehicle that will be used to transport voting equipment, host voter registration drives, and serve as a mobile voting center.
“The Elections & Registration office and I often brainstorm different ways to increase voter turnout and engage Porter County residents in voting,” said Jessica Bailey, Porter County Clerk. “This is one of the ideas that we have researched and thought would work well in our community. We are hoping to bring VoteMobile to locations such as parks and libraries to allow people the ability to walk to the voting site if need be or just to cast their ballot while completing their daily tasks.”
The white bus is decorated with a sleek American flag color palette on the sides. In addition, the words Every Vote Counts are boldly printed on the bus, along with the office’s so that voters can be directed to more information about the upcoming election and registration.
“It’s been great to be a part of this effort,” Parks said. “Being able to provide our designs for something that’s going to catch the eyes of the Porter County community and become a sort of iconic feature in this election is extremely fun and rewarding. We worked tirelessly to get this completed and when the time comes for it to mobilize, we can’t wait to see it out and about while serving the community.”
“We appreciate the Porter County Elections & Registration office for presenting this opportunity to give back to the community, and we look forward to seeing VoteMobile making a positive impact for residents all over the county.”
