STARKE COUNTY A tie vote in the primary election means there's still another step to decide who will be on the November ballot for the California Township Advisory Board in Starke County.
Four people ran for the republican position, and three names are supposed to be on the general election ballot. The top vote getters, Steve Ahlenius and Matt McGowan, Sr., will both be on that ballot, but WKVI reports Michele Albon and Phill Cherry tied with 53 votes a piece.
If they both decide to continue pursuing a spot on the board, the Republican Party will have to hold a caucus to decide whose name will appear on the November ballot. The party has until June 30 to name a candidate.
