Filing period coming up for Cass candidates

2014 ballot will include several offices.

(Continued)

Minor health issues are part of the reason he won't be on the ballot this spring, Arnold said, adding that the decision also falls in line with his firm belief in two-term limits.

"You become lazy," Arnold said. "You also learn the ins and outs of things and that's not always a good thing. I don't want to be known for that."

Lisa Swaim, chief deputy prosecutor for the county, announced her intention to file for Cass County Prosecuting Attorney in September. Kevin Enyeart, the county's current prosecuting attorney, will finish his third term this year and will not seek reelection.

Cindy Howard, secretary for the Cass County Commissioners, said this summer she plans to file for recorder.

Liming said recent changes in Indiana Code no longer permit employed or volunteer firefighters to serve on executive legislatures or fiscal bodies whose jurisdiction areas fall within the areas they provide fire protection for.

Absentee applications for Cass County public offices can be obtained by calling the voter registration office at 574-753-7870. Liming encouraged those with questions about filing to call the office as well.

April 7 is the deadline for voter registration. Liming said those registering to vote will now have the opportunity to receive a receipt to serve as proof of their registration. She added those providing others with voter registration forms will have 10 days to submit them to the clerk's office after they are completed.

Voter registration can be done at indianavoters.com or by visiting the Cass County Voter Registration Office on the first floor of the Cass County Government Building. Questions can be directed to the office at 574-753-7870.
