SALT LAKE CITY (November 20, 2013) The tiny town of Wallsburg, Utah, population 275, skipped its election earlier this month because part-time officials forgot to advertise or prepare for it, and it wasn't the town's first election flub.
Wallsburg also failed to schedule an election two years ago, and city officials had to be appointed to fill the positions that were supposed to have been on the ballot.
The same positions were supposed to be on the ballot on Nov. 5.
County Clerk Brent Titcomb said Wednesday the officials called for some guidance and were told to keep serving until an election can be held two years from now.
He said Wallsburg's mayor and four city council members had no hidden agenda in letting the election slide; they just forgot.
Titcomb promises officials "will remember them in 2015."
