The Alexandria City Election is set for Thursday, September 1 but only one name is on the ballot.
Darrell Dixon, a current alderman, was the only person to qualify to run in the election. Three aldermen were to be elected.
According to the DeKalb County Election Commission, no one else can be elected that day in this election, even by write-in. Dennis Stanley, Administrator of Elections, said persons attempted to be elected by write-in ballots had to complete a notice requesting his/her votes be counted no later than NOON July 13. Since no one met that deadline, no write-in votes can be counted on election day.
Members of the Alexandria council are Aldermen Pat Jackson, Tony Tarpley, Addie Farley, Derrick Baker, and Darrell Dixon. One position remains vacant. The Mayor is Ria Baker.
