Jeffersonville City Councilman who won recount asking for special election trial
January 14, 2016
By ELIZABETH BEILMAN

A hearing is scheduled for Feb. 11 at 9 a.m. in Clark County Circuit Court No. 1.

Judge Adams said there are three results that could come of this hearing —

keep the recount results,

order another recount,

or order a special election.

From the nifty N-T:

According to Indiana law, if a judge orders a special election
as the result of an election contest, the special election should be held on the ninth Tuesday
after the judge's order. If the timing is right, that date could fall on primary election day.

Angie Nussmeyer, co-director of the Indiana Election Division,

said the county would decide on the methods for the election.

"The judge could outline specific instructions

to the county election board but generally speaking,

the special election would be just for the office being contested

and that would be in the precincts of the district being contested," she said.

Nussmeyer confirmed David Mosley's belief that all six at-large candidates must appear on the ballot.

I hope Judge Adams is a football fan and handles this like the NFL handles challenges:  If the challengers lose, they are charged for the election, whatever it costs the county!

I'm confused on why Jack would suggest the city help with the cost of a special election. Did the city handle or count ballots? Surely if there were mistakes, they were on the part of county officials.

Am I missing something?

Breakfast Club Mystery Solved!

The Newsandtribune reported :

"According to Indiana law,

if a judge orders a special election

as the result of an election contest,

the special election should be held on the ninth Tuesday

after the judge's order. If the timing is right,

that date could fall on

primary election day."

 

Now we know why the intelligent Judge Adams

set the hearing date for February 11th.

 

He was very thorough

and may have set the date

so that IF there is to be a special election,

it would be held at the same time as the Primary Election for the county offices!

 

Hats off to Judge Adams!

That is very good planning

for a potentiality  that could occur.
