Voting is one of the most patriotic acts an American can perform; So, do it!
The responsibility of how a community is actually built, economic development, blueprinting local ordinances, borough budget formulation and other actions that impact residents on a daily basis, often lie in the hands of local council, made up of five councilmembers and a mayor.
This year there are three council positions up for election along with the mayors’ position.
Each local office holder makes decisions based on their knowledge and views of a particular issue. This is what makes voting in a municipal election so important. These are the people who will make important decisions that will affect your life.
Four candidates will be on ballot for council and there will be no candidates on the ballot for mayor this year. You must write in the name of the person that you will choose to vote for as mayor, so verify spellings as they must be exact!
Polls will be open November 7th from 7am-8pm at the Eldred Borough Ambulance Building on Platt Street (across from the Fire Hall).
