Without flashy major races on this year’s ballot, May’s primary election showed a historically low voter turnout in most counties. The candidates for Indiana state Auditor and Treasurer fear next Tuesday may hold the same results. Indiana Public Broadcasting’s Brandon Smith talks with the candidates about why they’re hoping voters go to the polls.
Candidates from the Libertarian Party of Indiana are also running for the state Auditor and Treasurer positions.
John Schick, the candidate for Auditor, is a management consultant from Chesterton. He says as auditor, he would strengthen audit control systems for spending state money.
On the ballot for Treasurer is Mike Jasper. He has a background as a CPA, controller, and chief financial officer for small businesses. Jasper says his philosophy to finances is a strategy with a long-term perspective that will give a more consistent return each year.
