Hendricks County’s own ... CONNIE LAWSON

Secretary of State is long-time resident

(Continued)

INDIANAPOLIS —

“It was at lunchtime and they said they were only waiting about 20 minutes,” she said. “They had several voting machines so people were getting in and out very quickly.”

There are seven Indiana counties using vote centers and two more are due to come online.

Another goal Lawson has set is to work on a customer service portal for business owners.

“My vision is to be able to interact with businesses, corporations, or small businesses online,” she said. “They would have a user name and password and be able to do their permitting, licensing, and reporting all through the portal.”

She said the system being used now is antiquated and very time consuming, especially for businesses trying to open their doors for the first time.

“Now all these services are separate,” Lawson said. “It will allow for a business to open up faster.”

She said they can use a similar system that the state used to help with voter registration.

“All 92 counties are connected with the Department and Health and the Bureau of Motor Vehicles,” she said. “We have a great model I think we can use for a business portal as well.”

Lawson may work downtown and travel all over Indiana to stay in touch with local county governments, but she comes home to Hendricks County at night.

“I still live in Danville and have lived in my house for 29 years,” she said. “We’ve lived in Hendricks County for longer than that.”
