Your Government Officials

About This Voter Guide

This guide was prepared by the League of Women Voters of Muncie-Delaware County with technical support from the Bowen Center for Public Policy at Ball State University. Answers to questions are in the candidates’ own words and have not been edited except for necessary cutting when a reply exceeded the stated word limit. The League did not make spelling or grammatical corrections in the candidates’ statements.

The voter guide is organized into three sections: federal, state, and local. The names of the candidates are placed in alphabetical order, as they will appear on the ballot.

Thanks to the County Clerk’s office, voters can obtain a personalized sample ballot. Google “Indiana Sample Ballot” and open the webpage of the Indiana Secretary of State. Enter your name, address, and date of birth. It is legal to take a sample ballot with you when you vote.

 

Updated: April 29, 2020 at 3:30PM

Publication of these statements is solely in the interest of public service and is in no way to be construed as an endorsement by the League of Women Voters. The League takes no responsibility for any of the views or facts stated by the candidates.
