Frankford seeking three candidates in upcoming election


The Town of Frankford is seeking candidates for its February town council election, as the seats currently filled by Charles Shelton, Pam Davis and Marty Presley have terms that are set to expire.

The Town’s annual election is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 6, 2016, at town hall, from 1 to 4 p.m.

Those who wish to run in the election must be at least 18, must have lived within the town for at least one year immediately preceding the date of the election, must be a qualified voter in the Town of Frankford and not have been convicted of a felony.

Those who wish to file as a candidate must file a written Notice of Intention at Frankford Town Hall no later than 4:30 p.m. on Jan. 13.

Those who wish to vote in the upcoming election may register at town hall. While a Frankford citizen may already be registered to vote in State elections, they are not automatically registered to vote in the municipality’s election.
