According to Washington County Clerk, Stephanie Rockey, voters today need to pay attention to special voting instructions when it comes to voting for “At-Large” candidates.

In the State of Indiana, regarding straight party tickets, any “At-Large” races, you have to make a voting mark on or in the box for the candidate that you wish to vote for, according to Rockey.

“This is just part of legislation that was passed back in 2018, and the way that the 2018 election ballots were done,” she said. “There are notations regarding this matter both on the paper ballot and the electronic ballot, both images are the same.”

So, on the 2019 Municipal General Election ballots, whether paper or electronic, the only race that is on the ballot today (Nov. 5) is the City Council Member At- Large, City of Salem race that the law would affect.

That race is between Republican Jody Smedley and Democrat R.H. Bennett

“But, again it is noted on the instruction text and the actual At-Large race of the ballot,” noted Rockey. “So, to further clarify, there is NO GLITCH with electronic voting and/or the ballots. For further clarification or questions, please call my office.”

The clerk’s office number is 812.883.5748
