VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — The Vigo County Election Board met on Friday afternoon to certify the elections for the 2022 season.

The election board’s Democrat representative John Kessler, the Republican representative, Jerry Arnold, and the board’s secretary, Brad Newman were all in attendance and led the meeting. The meeting opened with a review of contested votes throughout the county, ending with 6 additional votes added to the final election results.

Attendees asked the board a few questions regarding the Vigo County independent candidate Cody Alsman, who was not listed on all ballots for the 2022 midterm elections, and the tie for Linton Township Board Member between Teresa Barton and Joshua P Tryon, both Democrat candidates at 166 votes each.

The board stuck to the current agenda for the meeting and plans to have another meeting to discuss ways to prevent the incident of leaving a candidate off the ballot, and to notify the proper officials regarding the tie for Linton Township Board Member.

After the newly added votes were counted, the Vigo County Election Board certified this year’s elections and will be moving forward with the next steps. Future meetings have yet to be scheduled.
