Mayor to run as write-in; mail ballot information

   The person receiving the most votes will be notified and if he or she qualifies for and accepts the position, the person will be declared elected.
   In the event the person does not qualify or accept the position, the council will appoint a person to fill the vacancy on the council.
   Having gone through the candidates, voters will note that both Conrad and Valier will conduct their elections by mail ballot. Ballots will be mailed directly to the active registered voters in the municipalities on Oct. 13.
   Voted ballots must be returned to the Clerk and Recorder office prior to 8 p.m. Nov. 3.
   Vote counting starts at 8 p.m. on Nov. 3 at the main floor of the courthouse.
   Ballots are mailed to active voters. If you believe you are entitled to vote in the city elections and do not receive a ballot, you may not be registered at all or you have been marked inactive due to no voting in the November 2008 general election.
   Regular registration closes on Oct. 5, 5 p.m. If you miss this regular registration deadline, you may still register for the election by appearing at the county election office up to and including election day.
   This is the late registration process. Inactive electors may reactivate by appearing at the county election office in order to vote.
   Since this is a mail ballot election, if the ballots have not yet been mailed when you register or reactivate, your ballot will be mailed with Oct. 13 mailing.
   If the ballots have been mailed and you late register or reactivate, you will receive your ballot at the time of your visit to the Clerk and Recorder’s office.
   If you will not be in the area to receive your ballot and would like it mailed to a different address, please notify the Clerk and Recorder’s office and provide a mailing address for your ballot.
   If you have questions do not hesitate to contact the Clerk and Recorder’s office in the courthouse. The phone number is 271-4000.
