Improvements will be done to the North Bend Township polling location thanks to a Help America Vote Act (HAVA) grant.
According to Starke County Clerk Vicki Cooley, the county was awarded the grant worth $24,459.35. The money will be used to upgrade the handicapped accessibility at that site. The improvements will be done this spring. Proposals for the work will be taken soon.
The Starke County Election Board this week checked the proposed election ballots for the Knox Municipal Primary Election in May. The members checked the document for spelling and appearance on the ballot.
The Primary Election is Tuesday, May 5.
Cooley reminds candidates to turn in financial forms from last year’s campaign.
