Selbyville seeking candidates for election


Democracy is on display again in the coming months, as candidates are being invited to register for the 2019 Selbyville Town Council election. 

The annual election is scheduled for Saturday, March 2, although it has been canceled for years now, since the Town has repeatedly had too few contenders to require an election.

Both candidates and voters must register at Town Hall by Friday, Feb. 8, 2019, at 4:30 p.m.

A mayor and two town council members will be elected, each for a term of two years. The seats up for election are currently held by longtime Mayor Clifton C. Murray, and longtime Council Members G. Frank Smith III and Clarence W. “Bud” Tingle Jr.

Candidates must file a written Notice of Candidacy by Feb. 8, be at least 21 and a U.S. citizen, and have been a bona fide resident of the town for at least one year before Election Day.

Voters must register to participate in the election. Eligible voters must be at least 18 and a U.S. citizen, and be a bona fide resident of the town.

Forms are available at Selbyville Town Hall, 68 West Church Street.
