Few Contests On Putnam County Primary Ballot

Posted by wlpo on March 12, 2012

Are there more Democrats than Republicans in Putnam County?  Or are Democrats just more interested in serving on the county board?

Voters next Tuesday in Putnam County are being asked to pick five Democratic and Republican county board members.  There are seven Democrats to choose from including board chairman Duane Calbow.  There are only two Republican’s on the ballot, Steven Malavolti and Matthew Leitch.

Besides the presidential race and 16th congressional race, Putnam County Republicans do have a race for judge.  Associate Judge Kate Gorman is taking on lawyer Matthew Hoppock in the 10th Judicial Circuit.  Both are from Washington.

There is one referendum question in Putnam County.  Granville like many towns in the area is asking voters if they want an “opt-out” electricity option.
