For those of you voters living in the City of Muncie, there doesn’t seem to be much to draw you to the polls. In the majority of seats, there is just one Democrat running and no Republican. The exceptions are as follows:
District 2: The Republican ballot is incumbent Mark Conatser and Dan Ridenour. The Democrat ticket is Todd Smekens.
District 6: Democrat ballot is incumbent Julius Anderson and Richard Ivy.
At-Large candidates include three incumbents, Linda Gregory, Nora Powell and Alison Quirk. Three hopefuls Philip Gonzales, Marwin Strong and Robert York. This may be the hottest race – you can only vote for three and only vote if you select a Democrat ballot. Remember, just because someone appears on the ballot and you don’t want to cast a vote for that person, you are not obligated to do so.
You might be asking, where is Brad Polk? Well, he’s still here, sitting in District 4. Brad has no one running against him. Not on the Republican ticket nor on the Democrat ticket. In other words, Polk has already won the primary election.
I told you, the ballot is sparse.
