After 16 elections, current Tippecanoe County Clerk Christa Coffey's term in office is up. 

Roush was in the lead from the start last night. The Fairfield Township Trustee and Purdue alumna has over 15 years of government experience. Roush said her business background is what will help her to excel in this new position. If you hit the polls on election day, you may have experienced some difficulties in certain voting locations. Roush says she wants to work to prevent anything like that from happening.

"What are the issues?" asked Roush. "Is it power outages? Is it wifi issues? Is it metal buildings causing an issue? All of those things are gonna be looked at. We're going to talk to people in MIT that have an expertise with this sort of thing to try to help us make sure that we can do this more efficiently."
