Clarification regarding the sample ballots
By Daniel Arens
In hopes of clarifying any potential confusion from the layout of the sample ballots in last week’s Hazen Star and Beulah Beacon, we provide the following information.
These sample ballots are not the ballots you will receive at polling locations or in the mail. The sample ballots contain all potential elections in Mercer County; the ballot you receive will be specific to your precinct and will only include such elections as will occur within that precinct.
For example, although the sample ballots contain the names of candidates from both the Hazen City Commission and the Beulah City Council, the ballot at each polling place will only have the relevant city election for that precinct, not both.
