Oops: Utah Town Forgets To Hold Election

CREDIT:

The town of Wallsburg, Utah forgot to announce the fact that candidates for town office should file to do so — and then forgot to make arrangements for an election last November 5th, when Utah voters in the rest of the state cast ballots for municipal offices. As a result, the town of 275 will “have to appoint the current mayor and council for two more years and they’ll advertise and have people elected [in 2015],” according to the county clerk.

This is the second time this has happened. Wallsburg also forgot to hold an election two years ago, forcing the town’s officials to be appointed that time as well.
