Election Board to Consider Poll Watcher Request


The Starke County Election Board will consider a request for poll watchers during a brief meeting this evening. The committee formed to support the North Judson-San Pierre School Corporation’s general fund tax referendum has submitted a formal request to allow volunteers to keep an eye on each precinct.

Election board members are meeting at 5:30 p.m. at the courthouse to verify the signatures on the petition are those of registered voters who reside within Starke County.

The school district includes all precincts in Wayne, Railroad and Jackson Townships and California Township Precinct 2. Voters in Rich Grove and Cass Townships in Pulaski County also live within the N.J.-S.P. school district.
