2020 primary election

An Elkhart voter submits a ballot at North Side Middle School gymnasium Tuesday in the primary election.

ELKHART — From first-timers to long-timers, winners and losers, primary candidates throughout Elkhart County were forced to change their plans heading into the election Tuesday.

The coronavirus pandemic meant that a lot of in-person campaign events and candidate debates had to be canceled. Hopefuls for elected office found they had to rely more on things like social media, advertising and yard signs to get their names, faces and messages out there.
