Normally, Cache County Clerk Jill Zollinger would not be involved in municipal elections, but this is a different kind of year. There is a $129 million school bond election for the Cache School District and they asked for the county to help.
Zollinger says she has been responsible for seeing that those in the unincorporated areas get ballots and they were sent out by mail around October 7. She says they went to areas outside of cities such as Cove, College Ward, Young Ward and Mt. Sterling. All those residents have to do is mail them back.
“And that can even happen on election day for people. But on election day they couldn’t call us, they would have to come into our office,” Zollinger explains. “Those ballots that were mailed out, they need to be post-marked the day before the election.
“When we sent those ballots out we had postage on the envelope coming back. So all they have to do is mark their ballot, stick it in the blue envelope they would have received to get back to us, put that in the mail, get it post-marked the day before the election.”
That means the ballots must be postmarked by midnight Monday.
