In Allen County, Plenty of Contested Primaries

May 1, 2015

The Indiana municipal primaries take place Tuesday, May 5th -- a chance for Democrats and Republicans to choose the candidates who will be running for local offices this November.

In Allen County, some races are entirely uncontested, but many should be competitive, especially the seats being vacated by incumbents.

All this week, we've been bringing you snapshots of Fort Wayne’s primary field with the help of Andy Downs at the Mike Downs Center for Indiana Politics at IPFW.

WBOI’s Sean Bueter recently talked with Downs about some of this year’s competitive races. They started by discussing some of the practical components of Election Day.

You can find the full list of Allen County municipal candidates at the county's website (pdf).
