Early voting has begun in St. Joseph County and across Indiana. The practice of early voting is increasingly popular with voters across the country as it greatly expands opportunities for voting.
A number of important races are taking place in the area, including the race between Jackie Walorski and Joe Bock for Indiana’s 2nd Congressional district. A number of local and state races will also be decided, including the county prosecutor seat being vacated by long-time prosecutor Mike Dvorak in St. Joseph County.
