The outgoing Tippecanoe County clerk says there’s no recourse for voters whose votes, cast at a West Lafayette supermarket over the weekend, may have been switched because of machine error.

Several voters – eight so far, by Christa Coffey’s count – reported clicking boxes next to the names of Democratic candidates and having those votes show up instead for Republicans running in the same race.

Some voters were able to change the votes before they were officially cast, but there’s no telling how many voters may simply not have noticed.

The kerfuffle concerning the Clinton County Humane Society and its finances has led at least one additional person to run for office.

J.J. Tate, son of fired Humane Society Director Jim Tate, plans to seek an at-large city council seat in next year’s municipal elections.

The younger Tate, who’s 28 years old, says attending public meetings after his father was pink-slipped caused him to believe the city needs new blood in office.

“You know, there’s a lot of things that are going on in the city that I really feel people aren’t just clued into,” Tate says.
