Write-in votes may decide Carthage City Council posts

Carthage voters in April do not now have a single choice to make in filling posts on the City Council. Mayor Mike Harris and three ward council members are unopposed in running for re-election. But no candidate has filed for the 2nd Ward and 3rd Ward council seats, meaning those could be filled by write-in candidates. If the posts aren’t filled by a write-in ballot, Harris said, he will appoint members to fill them after the April 8 vote.
