The Starke County Election Board members presented the consolidated polling sites for the June 2 Primary Election for review and approval by the Starke County Commissioners.
Clerk Bernadette Manuel reminds voters that this will be a precinct-specific Primary Election. Due to COVID-19 concerns, the polling sites were consolidated to help curb the spread of the virus.
While Manuel stresses that no excuse absentee voting is available and ballots may be requested by calling the Clerk’s Office at 772-9128 or through the clerk’s Facebook messenger.
