Five residents have filed for the District One city council seat being vacated by Councilman Gordon Thomas. Because of the high number of candidates, a primary election will be held in that district on Sept. 13 to narrow the number of candidates to two before the general election in November.

The candidates in District One are Richard “Dick” Fisher, Janet Janke, Todd Leeds, Crystal Perry, and Mike Shelton. The candidates in District Two are Scott Bracken and James Thuet.

In the District One primary election, early voting is available from Aug. 15 through Sept. 9 at the Salt Lake County Government Center at 2001 S. State Street. Early voting will also be available at the city offices from Aug. 30 to Sept. 9.

A sample ballot and a copy of the Fair Campaign Practices Pledge, along with information about polling precincts, polling locations and how to register to vote are available here.
