In 2004, the Council created the Council Investigative Election Committee to investigate elections in Marion County. Numerous improvements were recommended at that time and many have been implemented. A copy of the report is available from the Council Office. The members of the current committee are Councillors Lonnell Conley, Susie Day, Ron Gibson, Robert Lutz, Cherrish Pryor, and Ryan Vaughn.
The next full committee meeting will be July 2, 2007 at 5:00 p.m. in room 260 of the City-County Building. The public is welcomed to testify at that meeting.
