ELKHART — Voters in Elkhart County continue to express concerns about the Elkhart Community Schools referendum and who may be eligible to vote on the ballot question, but Circuit Court Clerk Christopher Anderson said the following statement should help clear up any confusion:
"All registered voters of Cleveland Township, Osolo Township and Washington Township are eligible for the Elkhart Community Schools Public Question. In addition, some residents of Concord Township who live inside the Elkhart City limits may be eligible for the Elkhart Community Schools Public Question, depending on your registration address.
"If you live in Concord Township and have a five-digit address, more than likely, you are not eligible to vote in the Municipal elections this year. A five-digit address generally means that you are outside the city limits and thus reside in the Concord School District. Those registered voters who live in Concord Township and have an address that is four digits or less are more than likely to be eligible to vote in the Municipal Primary, and may be eligible to vote on the Elkhart Community Schools Public Question.
"If a voter has any question about their eligibility and what office and questions may be on their ballot, they can visit www.indianavoters.in.gov. They will be asked their name, birthdate, and county of residence. They will select their name and then the website will generate the list of offices and candidates that will appear on their ballot."
In-person absentee voting for the primary is already under way. Election Day is May 7.
