Tippecanoe Co. Election Board Decides on Delegate Challenges
Tippecanoe County Republicans will send about 35 delegates to the state convention in June.
Just four-years ago the number attending was 40.
The county Election Board rejected nine of eleven would-be delegates after challenges were initiated about their validity.
Members found that some people didn’t meet proper criteria to represent the party.
Board Chairman Bob Reiling says the pair allowed on the ballot registered to represent the wrong district, which wasn’t their fault.
However, County Republican Chair Bob Hicks says that doesn’t totally rule out the others as serving as a delegate.
Indiana’s state convention is June eighth and ninth.
Those rejected did not have a primary voting record or a history of voting as a Democrat in previous elections.
