Frankford voter registration deadline comes next week


The Town of Frankford will hold its annual election on Feb. 7, with voters to fill two seats, currently held by Council President Joanne Bacon and Secretary/Treasurer Cheryl Workman.

Those who wish to vote must register by Wednesday, Dec. 31, at town hall. If a resident has not voted in two consecutive Town elections they must re-register. Those who are unsure if they are registered to vote should contact town hall.

Town Administrator Terry Truitt said the Town currently has approximately 126 residents registered to vote; however, that figure may change during the voter registration period.

The election will be held between 1 and 4 p.m. on Feb. 7, at town hall. Those who go to cast their vote in February must remember to take with them a proof of identification and address, such as a current State of Delaware driver’s license or ID card and a current utility bill, bank statement, credit card statement, a paycheck, or another type of bill or statement.

The Town’s 2013 election was canceled. In 2012 Councilmen Jesse Truitt and Charles Shelton were reelected, with a total of 61 and 58 votes, respectively.

Those elected will serve a two-term term on council. Truitt said that, at the March 2015 monthly meeting, the council will reorganize and select council members’ positions.

Those interested in running in the election must be at least 18, must have resided in 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 must not have been convicted of a felony.

Anyone wishing to file as a candidate for the February election must file a written Notice of Intention at the Frankford Town Hall no later than 5:30 p.m. on Jan. 6, 2015.
