Election Information

Official Election Results - Election will be canvassed on May 15, 2024
The number of voters is 448 however our totals equal 449. Once this error was realized, the Early Voting Clerk started to double-check the tally sheets from Election Day, and no error was noticed. After that, she then compared the Election Day Combination sheets to the voter roster, and no error was noticed. We could not locate the error after days of double-checking and triple-checking the numbers. Elkhart ISD Election workers will work harder in the future to ensure no errors are made to keep Elkhart ISD Excellence, in our opinion it was a human error.
