Primary Voting - Cedar Lake Precinct Map AND Voting locations.

Primary is Tuesday!   The Republicans of Cedar Lake and Hanover Township have only one contested race and both of them are great candidates.   First, if you do not know what Ward/Precinct you are in, the map links are below:

I made a copy but it won't zoom in like the one online:

The zoomable map is located here.

Marilyn Kaper - Ward 2 Town Council
John Foreman - Ward 2 Town Council

(Personal note:  Within my family there is a split on this choice.) 

Win/win no matter who comes out on top.   Marilyn Kaper has been a devoted servant/board member/involved parent in Cedar Lake for somewhere in the vicinity of 30 years and has been an active part of the long, slow change from backwoods burgh to modern(izing) and growing community and certainly integral to making Hanover Central Schools one of the best school districts in the State of Indiana.   John Foreman (who clued me in to the location of the map online) has been part of the recent developments in town as the incumbent Council member and is familiar with and works in hi-tech industry.   John is a well-traveled professional in a highly specialized industry, Marilyn is also known to the town as her family's Cedar Lake Florist shop is a Lakeshore Drive fixture.

Running unopposed on the primary ballot:

Ralph Miller - Ward 4 Town Council

Patricia (King) Cassasa - Ward 6 Town Council

Gregory (Greg) Parker - Ward 7 Town Council

Amy Sund - Clerk Treasurer

By going to the Lake County Indiana webpage and clicking on the GIS link, you can see the precinct maps of all municipalities in Lake County, Indiana.

So once you know which precinct/ward that is yours,  you then go to the voting site for that ward.

  1. I would like to congratulate John Foreman for the win and for his help in gathering map information and also his willingness to take time with a young technically inclined teenager.

    I would like to thank Marilyn Kaper for a classy campaign and her many years of service to our community and the school system. I hope she continues to look for ways to help keep Cedar Lake advancing.

    Both Kaper and Foreman ran a cordial campaign and worked hard. It was classic American politics without the corruption and backstabbing. Other communities and candidates could learn a lot from these two fine people!
