City Commission making final call on Hazen voting precinct
In preparation for the 2012 election year, the Hazen City Commission must either re-enter a joint agreement with Mercer County or plan to have a polling site in Hazen before Jan. 1, 2012.
The commission opted out of the joint election agreement with Mercer County at a June 2010 meeting. The county has held a Vote By Mail election in recent elections, with the county’s lone polling site located at the Stanton Civic Center in Stanton. If Hazen opened a site, residents would have the option of either voting by mail or visiting the polling site in Hazen.
