Ballot vacancies filled by appointment

June 2, 2014

Although the primary election has been decided, some ballot vacancies could still be determined.

According to Whitley County Clerk of the Courts Debbie Beers, candidate vacancies can be filled until June 30 at noon.

“Typically the person is appointed by a party caucus,” said Beers. “It’s not an overwhelming amount of positions that are handled this way, but in the past there have been several.

It just depends on how aggressive the parties want to be in putting people in those empty spots.”

In the primary election, certain races only offered a Republican candidate.

That means the Democratic party has until the deadline to fill the ballot slot with a candidate for the fall election.
