Clerk warns voters about straight tickets

Truth file photo Straight-ticket voting does not work for at-large races, where candidates need to be selected individually, according to the Elkhart County Clerk's Office. 

GOSHEN — Elkhart County Clerk Christopher Anderson said this week that voters need to know that straight-ticket voting is only applicable in certain races. 

Straight-ticket votes will only count in elections where voters have to choose between two candidates. That would include mayoral races and district races.
