 Voters Will Cast Four Votes in CAB Races

April 23, 2008 - Voters in Wayne, Greensboro and Ripley townships will be allowed to cast up to four votes in the May 6 Charles A. Beard School Board election - one for each of the four seats up for election. As is the case with five of the other six school corporations located at least partially in Henry County, voters within CAB's boundaries have the right to vote for all members of the board, not just those who represent the voter's particular township or district of residence. All voters vote in all four races.

This means voters from Rush County's Ripley Township will not only get to choose between the three candidates vying for the Ripley Township seat that's up for election - they will get to vote for candidates in the Wayne Township and Greensboro Township races as well. Every voter - regardless of which township they call home - can vote for a candidate in each CAB race.

Eight candidates are vying for the four board seats up for election this year at CAB. In Wayne Township, Mark Fort and Brian Smith are challenging incumbent Leah Kopp for two seats, while Steve Dalton is running against incumbent Debi Ware in the Greensboro Township race. Tim Wehr and Jeremy Howard are trying to unseat three-term Ripley Township incumbent Mike Fruth, the current board president.

The four-year terms of office for three of the four board members elected next month will begin July 1. The fourth candidate, the one who gets the second highest vote total in Wayne Township, will take what is termed the board's "lag" seat - the position now held by Kopp. That term doesn't start until July 1, 2009.


*Voters in Wayne Township, depending on which precinct they live in, will vote at one of three polling sites: the Hoosier Gym, 355 N. Washington St. (Precinct 1); the fire station, 30 S. Washington St. (Precinct 2); or CAB's central office, 345 N. Adams St. (Precinct 3).

*Greensboro Township voters will vote at Kennard Town Hall, 100 N. Main St.

*Voters in Rush County's Precinct 9 (inside Carthage) and Precinct 10 (outside Carthage) will vote at the Carthage United Methodist Church, 205 N. East St., Carthage.
