Are you confused about election line-up?


The upcoming Aug. 7 Cannon County General Election has some voters confused about two separate races, County Commissioner and County Road Commissioner.

 “The County Commission has five districts with two seats in each district,” explained Dorinda Mankin, Administrator of Elections. Voters will be able to vote for only two of the candidates listed in their particular district.

 When it comes to the Road Commissioner race, all three zones are listed on each countywide ballot.

 “You can vote in all three races,” Mankin explained, no matter where you live in Cannon County.

Early voting begins Friday, July 18 and continues through Aug. 2

Aug. 7 is election day. You must be registered to vote.
