ELKHART — Only a little over a quarter of registered voters took part in the Tuesday municipal election in Elkhart County, not an impressive turnout but higher than the 21 percent of registered voters who participated in the 2015 contest. 

Over 38,600 registered voters did not vote, and early voting accounted for about 21 percent of the vote this election, officials said Tuesday night.

Maybe! Just maybe the voting problem was because there were many vote for Miller or vote for Roberson signs outside the Elkhart City limits. Most people have no idea whether they live in the city or county!

There were also voting locations operating that were outside the city limits of Elkhart or Goshen.

Yep Fly! That new law was a debacle! At the very least you should vote in your governmental distinction! To have polling places open and no one running for office in that governmental distinction is at the least an ineffective use of tax money!
