Starke County Election Board to Set Up Satellite Early Voting Site in North Judson

North Judson voters won’t have to travel to Knox to cast their ballots early ahead of November’s municipal election. Starke County Clerk Bernadette Welter-Manuel told the rest of the county election board last week that since North Judson is the only town having an election this year, she’d like to set up a satellite absentee voting location there.

“I had lunch with Angela Nussmeyer, which is the state election board co-director,” Welter-Manuel explained, “and we have to make a resolution to do so and make the hours for it and we are fine.”

Board members agreed to have in-person absentee voting on October 17, 18, 19, 24, 25, and 26 in North Judson, and at the Starke County Courthouse in Knox on November 2 and 4. The exact hours and satellite location will be determined during a special election board meeting to be held next week, but Welter-Manuel suggested North Judson’s fire station or library as possible early voting sites.

Election Day voting will take place Tuesday, November 5 from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the precinct polling places.
