District 31 candidate list set, vote takes place tomorrow

The final roster of candidates vying to fill the remainder of Representative Kevin Mahan’s term has been set.

The House District 31 candidates are Grant County’s Steve Henderson and Ann Vermilion, and Blackford County’s John Lancaster.

The caucus will be held tomorrow at 6:30 p.m. at Marion’s Ivy Tech Community College.

A Facebook Live Stream will be available at for members of the public who wish to watch the caucus live.

The caucus will be presided over by Indiana Republican Party State Chairman Kyle Hupfer.

Each candidate will be recognized in alphabetical order and given two minutes for someone to speak on their behalf as a way of introduction and three minutes to speak on their own behalf.

Votes cast will be done by secret ballot and tallied by two tellers designated by the State Chairman.

If a majority of 50 percent plus 1 of eligible voters present and voting is reached on the first ballot, a winner will be declared.

If no candidate receives a majority vote on the first ballot, the person (or persons in the case of a tie) with the lowest number of votes will be dropped and a second ballot conducted. This process will continue until a candidate receives the required majority vote.
