Starke County Election Board to Finish Election Preparations, Discuss Finance Reports

Starke County Election Board members will finish preparations for next month’s General Election when they meet this morning. Members are scheduled to review plans for the upcoming poll worker training, as well as election procedures.

They will also continue working on plans for a secure storage area for voting machines. The idea has been discussed for several months, but implementation has been delayed as county officials try to figure out the best way to bring the county into compliance with state regulations.

The election board is also expected to discuss campaign finance reports today. Candidates who didn’t have them turned in by last Friday will be fined $50 per day, but they have the chance to appeal that.

This morning’s Starke County Election Board meeting starts at 9:30 in the second floor meeting room in the Starke County Courthouse.
