TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - The results of the 2019 Tippecanoe County Municipal Election were certified by the Tippecanoe County Election Board.

Only 12% of eligible voters in Tippecanoe County voted. This number includes both active and inactive voters. A total of 8,175 people voted.

The Purdue Memorial Union, Federated Church, and West Lafayette Fire Department polling stations saw the largest number of voters.

After the results were certified, public comments were heard.

Many of the concerns brought forward were about machine malfunctions. County Clerk, Julie Roush, said poll workers were quick to respond to any issues with machines and had them replaced when needed.

One public comment suggested there was an overall lack of faith in the machines among the county. Roush said otherwise.

“I don't believe it's the county as a whole that have an issue with these machines because we had 8,175 voters and we had, that I know of, three complaints.” Roush said.

Roush said poll workers will be trained to inform voters to let them know of any machine issues for future elections.

The estimated cost of the election is close to $110,000.
