Candidate Filing Deadline Looms


The filing deadline has arrived for candidates seeking election in communities hosting a Town Convention.

August 3rd at noon is the deadline for candidates to either declare their candidacy or remove their name from the ballot for the Town Conventions. If more than one candidate of the same party files for a seat, voters will choose a nominee during a town convention. The winner of that contest will represent the party in the November General Election.

As of Friday, the Starke County Clerk’s Office advised no new candidates had filed. WKVI News will update the list of candidate filings and break down the contested races as soon as a final list is available.
