Wapello County Recorder Special Election July 9

The special election in Wapello County for the seat of county recorder is coming up on July 9 and you can vote for one of the three candidates vying for the seat.

The Wapello County Supervisors decided several months ago to hold a special election instead of simply appointing somebody to the office.

This election is just like any other. You can absentee vote at the courthouse.

â??We do not have the ballots yet. We're hoping they'll come today. The pre-registration deadline is tomorrow at 5 and then the 5 I believe is the last day that you can request an absentee ballot to be mailed. We need that request by 5 and of course the Monday before the election which is July 8 would be the last day you can absentee vote in office,â?? Kelly Spurgeon, Wapello County Auditor.

Spurgeon said along with the county recorder election the city of Blakesburg will be voting for a council position as well.
