Deadline to File for North Judson At-Large Seats is Approaching

Two at-large seats on the North Judson Town Council will be on the Starke County November General Election Ballot. The deadline to file for candidacy is Wednesday, Aug. 1.

Clerk Vicki Cooley told the Starke County Election Board members on Wednesday that Incumbent Democrat John Rowe has filed for a seat on the North Judson Town Council. Incumbent Republican Josh Brown filed Thursday morning for an at-large seat.

If more than two Democrats or two Republicans file for the two seats available, a town convention will be scheduled with a date prior to Aug. 21. So far, action to schedule that is not needed.

Candidates may file in the Starke County Clerk’s Office. For more information, call 574-772-9160.

As previously reported, the North Judson Town Council members did not pass an ordinance by Jan. 1 to indicate that those seats would be included in the May Primary Election. Those candidates will now be determined this fall.
