Voters in Elkhart County vote in municipal races amid election confusion

Voters on Election Day 2019 in Elkhart County

ELKHART, Ind.—Elections across Elkhart County on November 5 will decide who will sit on Elkhart and Goshen’s respective common councils.

Races in both Millersburg and Bristol also brought voters out to the polls.

Elkhart County Clerk Christopher Anderson said early Tuesday that several voting centers in the county were reporting confusion “as the result of the constant national debates that are on TV.”

Anderson reiterated that the November 5, 2019 elections were municipal elections, not national elections.
