Jennifer Doriot, Republican, has been elected as recorder for Elkhart County, defeating incumbent Jerry Weaver and opponent Jennifer Sanders.
Doriot, 55, has said she wants to increase the window of time people can submit documents to the recorder's office, improve customer service and make cuts to unnecessary spending.
She currently works part-time as a geographic information systems tech for the county auditor's office. She also works with her husband Blake Doriot, county surveyor, at their land surveying business, B Doriot & Associates Inc.
Doriot received 5314 votes. Weaver received 3828 votes and Sanders received 2530 votes.
