Crown Point Community Library

Election Rolls Display in the Crown Point Lobby

Posted by jletcher on

The 1934 Primary Election Rolls are on display in the Crown Point Library lobby through November; starting in December, they will be on display in the Indiana Room.

 

These rolls were in possession of The Lake County Board of Elections and Registration.  They were found by the Honorable Lorenzo Arredondo while looking through other records at the American Legion post.  There was discussion as to the best use/display of the records so they would not be lost to time and space again.  The board decided to make an offer to the Crown Point Community Library Indiana Room as a donation of the rolls.  It was agreed between the Director, Indiana Room Specialist, and Board Representative that the record books would be transferred to the Library.  The official transfer of records to the Director and Indiana Room Specialist occurred during the July 16, 2019, Lake County Board of Elections and Registration meeting.  Following the display in the lobby, the Library agrees to make them available to the public for viewing.   Please make arrangements with the Reference Desk if you wish to view the roll books after they are returned to the Indiana Room.
