Klutz named to Indiana Election Commission

Zachary Klutz

The president and Republican appointee of the Allen County Election Board has resigned to serve on the Indiana Election Commission.

Gov. Mike Pence appointed Zachary Klutz to replace Dan Dumezich, who left to take a new position with the Indiana Republican Party.

The Indiana Election Commission is responsible for the administration of state election and campaign finance laws.

"I'm honored to accept the governor's appointment and utilize my local election experience at the state level," Klutz said. "I will miss my active involvement with local election administration and my participation on the Allen County Election Board but look forward to serving a larger base ofIndianavoters at the Indiana Election Commission."

Klutz was appointed to the Allen County Election Board by Allen County Republican Party Chairman Steve Shine in 2009. Shine also made the recommendation of Klutz to Pence for the state position.

Klutz is a partner and corporate attorney with Barrett & McNagny in Fort Wayne.

Shine will appoint his replacement on the local board by Wednesday.
