Democrats will be also be asked to make two choices among a field of four candidates running for county commission: Leslie Kephart, Fred Balleweg, Alex Ufford, all of Vermillion, and Robert Kyte, Burbank.
Vermillion city voters must choose among three candidates seeking election to a four year term as mayor: incumbent Dan Christopherson is being challenged by Brian Fagnan and James A. Johnson.
Voters in the Southeast Ward also must go to the polls. Incumbent Ray Hofman and former District 17 legislator Judy Clark are vying for election to a four year term on the city council.
