Only one person has qualified to run for three seats on the Alexandria Board of Mayor and Alderman.
Darrell Dixon, a current alderman, turned in his qualifying petition by the noon deadline on Thursday, June 16.
But it is not too late for others who may be interested in holding a position on the town's board.
Dennis Stanley, Administrator of Elections, said persons attempted to be elected by write-in ballots can complete a notice requesting his/her votes be counted no later than NOON July 13. The person requesting to be a
write-in candidate must fill out a particular form that can be obtained at the election commission office in Smithville. If someone does seek to be a write-in candidate, his or her name will not be on the ballot.
The Alexandria election is set for September 1, 2011.
