Three candidates battle for two seats on Dagsboro council


The Town of Dagsboro will be holding its annual municipal election on Saturday, Dec. 1 from 1 to 5 p.m.

Two seats are up for grabs, both with two-year terms. Three residents have filed as candidates: incumbents William DeHaven and Norwood Truitt, who currently serves as vice-mayor, as well as former mayor and councilman S. Bradley Connor.

The deadline to obtain absentee ballots has passed, but voters may cast in-person ballots at the Dagsboro Fire Company on Saturday.

Eligible voters must be property owners with their name appearing on the town’s assessment list or be a resident who has registered as a voter with the town.

To ensure they are registered, would-be voters can call town hall. They should also make sure to bring identification and proof of residence, such as a utility bill with a physical address, to the polls. Voters must be 18 or older. If an individual is both a resident and a property owner in Dagsboro, he or she still has only one vote.

Dagsboro Fire Hall is located at 31818 Waples Street in Dagsboro. For more information on the election, call Dagsboro Town Hall (302) 732-3777 or visit www.townofdagsboro.com.
