Municipal elections for the city of Clarksburg are just two months away, and election officials met Monday to determine the order that the names will appear on the ballot.
The names of the 15 candidates running for city council were drawn at random Monday morning, and the two ballot commissioners approved the final order of the ballots, Monday afternoon. Both commissioners have signed and approved the ballot order, so now the ballots can be sent to the printer.
“We’re non-partisan and we use a paper ballot, so we have to have a random drawing by state code to see how it appears, so that’s why we have the drawing in the manner in which we did,” city clerk Annette Wright said.
The Clarksburg municipal election will be held on Tuesday, June 4.
