MISHAWAKA — A ballot snafu is leading to lots of questions.
A question was missing from some ballots in Mishawaka and voters who live in St. Joseph County but are in the Mishawaka school district weren’t allowed to vote on a measure to have a partially elected school board.
The controversy stems from a question mandated by the state legislature. It asked voters if three School City of Mishawaka board members should be elected by voters and the other two appointed by the mayor and city council.
“We went to try and vote on the school board issue and our voting station was closed,” said Michael Walker, who lives outside Mishawaka city limits in St. Joseph County but inside School City limits.
