Today is Final Day to File for Knox Election


Today is the last day to file for the City of Knox Municipal Election.

Knox City Council Districts 1-4 are up for election including an at-large seat. Knox voters will also select a city clerk-treasurer and the judge of the city court. The primary election will be held on May 5.

There is no primary election for the seats for the North Judson or Hamlet Town Council in Starke County as the towns have a population under 3,500. Town conventions will be held if there are opposing party candidates in the seats up for election. Otherwise, the candidates will be featured on the ballot in the General Election in November. The same goes for the towns of Winamac, Francesville, Medaryville and Monterey in Pulaski County.

The last day to file for town council seats is Aug. 3.

If a candidate in the City of Knox election wants to withdraw from the ballot, they have until Feb. 9 to do so.
