Special election set for Alpine council seats

When the dust settled in the Alpine Town Council race last week the town was left with a tie. Tim Foppiano earned 180 votes. Robert Kinn brought in 181 votes. Troy Greene tallied 180 votes.

Following the General Election Lincoln County Clerk Jeanne Wagner announced that a mail ballot special election would take place to determine which candidates would serve on the Alpine Town Council. There are two seats on the council up for election.  According to the Lincoln County Clerk’s Office, the mail ballot election will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 27. All eligible electors will be mailed a ballot. Ballots began arriving this week.  “Please contact the County Clerk’s Office immediately if you need to make an address change or you do not receive a ballot,” said April Brunski, deputy county clerk. “There will also be a polling place on election day (Nov. 27) at the Alpine Town Hall that will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.”

According to Brunski, ballots may either be mailed in to the Lincoln County Clerk’s Office prior to Nov. 27, or “dropped off” at the polling location on Nov. 27.

“All ballots must be in the  County Clerk’s Office in Kemmerer no later than 7 p.m. on Nov. 27 to be counted or turned in to the polling place at the Alpine Town Hall by 7 p.m. on Nov. 27,” said Brunski.

According to information provided by the Lincoln County Clerk’s Office, individuals able to vote in the Alpine Town Council Special Election include “qualified electors of the municipality that are already registered.” There will be no new voter registration for the special election.

“A voter may obtain a replacement ballot if the ballot was destroyed, spoiled, lost, or for some other reason not received,” said Brunski. “The voter must sign a sworn statement specifying the reason for requesting the replacement ballot.”
