Each of the polling sites for November’s municipal elections will have two electronic voting machines in place. Members of the Starke County Election Board say that will help speed the process and will also provide a backup in case a machine malfunctions.
The City of Knox has four precincts, for a total of eight machines. North Judson will have three or four, and Hamlet will have one. Knox voters will elect a mayor, clerk-treasurer and city council members. Voters in North Judson and Hamlet will select clerk-treasurers and town council members. Election board members say this will be the first time electronic voting machines have been used in Hamlet.
