2020 National, State, and Local Elections: A Breakdown

While the country is focused this week on the Iowa Caucuses and the national race for president, it’s worth remembering that there will be a number of local elections in 2020, as well, both state-wide and right here in Grant County.

Of course, the Indiana Primary will decide which candidates will face off in the General Election this November. One important fact to keep in mind is that our current Congresswoman, Susan Brooks, is retiring this year, which means the Indiana Fifth District seat in the House of Representatives is up for grabs, and there is a large handful of candidates, both Republican and Democrat, already hoping to take it.

A list of this year’s candidates and contended offices in the Indiana Primary Election is provided here, by the state of Indiana. When you visit this website, all you have to do is click “Who’s on the Ballot,” and then enter your county (Grant) and your individual precinct. (A list of current candidates Grant County residents will vote for is provided later in this article.)

You can also visit the Secretary of State’s web page to register to vote online or check your registration status.

Here is a breakdown of important dates you need to know:

  • Primary Election Registration Deadline: April 6th
  • Indiana Primary Election Day: May 5th
  • General Election Registration Deadline: October 5th
  • Early Voting in Indiana: October 5th – November 2nd
  • General Election Day: November 3rd

All of these dates, plus other important Indiana voter information, can be found in one place at Vote Save America.

While it’s still early and these candidates are subject to change, here is the current list of candidates Grant County residents have the opportunity to vote for in the Indiana Primary on May 5th.
