INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) -- Indiana Secretary of State, Charlie White will know in twenty days if he can hold onto his job.

That’s when a Marion County judge is expected to rule on his eligibility to hold office in light of the voter fraud case pending against him.

White decided to skip this Wednesday morning's hearing much to the surprise of the state Democratic Party which is challenging the state's recount commissions decision that allowed him to stay in office.

Karen Horseman Attorney for the Democratic Party says, “We want the judge to rule that the commission erroneously decided this issue and that they are required to issue an order that says Charlie White cannot serve as secretary of state and issue an order that a certificate of election be issued for Vop Osili,"

White also faces criminal charges including voter fraud in Hamilton County.

He has asked a judge to dismiss that case.
