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.
