Last Day to Vote Early in Canon Mayor, City Council Races

Today is the last day for Canon voters to cast an early ballot in the Mayor and City Council races before Tuesday’s special election.

Canon City Clerk Leslie Cash tells WLHR News City councilwoman Annie Wallace was the only person to qualify for the mayor’s race.

She is running unopposed and will fill the unexpired term of late mayor Ray Morgan who passed away on January 27.

Wallace will have to qualify again, however, in August to run for the full four-year term in November.

That leaves Wallace’s City Council seat open and two candidates are running to fill that unexpired term.

They are William Minish and Cullen Morgan, Ray Morgan’s son.

Whoever wins that city council seat will also have to qualify again in August to run for the full four-year term in November.

Additionally, the City Council seat currently held by Dale Garner is also open in November and qualifying for that race takes place in August as well.

Early voting is taking place at the Franklin County Elections and Registrations office in Carnesville.

The election takes place Tuesday, June 15 and voters will got to their regular poling place.

At 5p on June 15th, the Franklin County Board of Elections will begin tabulating the absentee and early voting ballots at the Elections and Registration office in Carnesville and that is open to the public.
