Caucus Information for Corydon Town Council Ward 4 Vacancy

The Harrison County Republican Central Committee will caucus on Monday, February 15, at 7:00 p.m. at the Harrison County Government Center in Corydon for the purposes of filling the vacancy for Ward 4 on the Corydon Town Council created by the resignation of Tyson Uhl, who has resigned to move to a new job in another state.

Only precinct committee members from the Town of Corydon may vote in this caucus. Precinct vice committee members may vote as proxies for their absent precinct committee member.

Voting will be by private ballot and will continue until one candidate has reached a majority of the precinct committee members and proxies that are present.

Indiana law empowers the county chairman to break a tie if one exists, but the county chairman will not be exercising this authority. Voting will continue until the tie is broken by the committee members and their proxies.

Once the caucus has selected who will fill the vacancy, the county chairman will certify the result to the Circuit Court Clerk. Harrison Circuit Court Judge John Evans will be on hand to swear in whoever is chosen to fill the vacancy.

Individuals interested in seeking the vacancy must file a written declaration of candidacy (CEB-5 form) with Harrison County Republican Party Chairman Scott Fluhr no later than 72 hours before the caucus, in this case by Friday, February 12 at 7:00 p.m. Individuals interested in seeking the Ward 4 Corydon Town Council position can contact him via email address on the right. The necessary forms are available from the Circuit Court Clerk's office or via the aforementioned email address.

The caucus meeting on the evening of February 15 will be open to the public.
