Rising Sun names new members to election board
RISING SUN — An almost- new board has been seated for the upcoming Oct. 16 town election after a unanimous vote Tuesday night by the commissioners.
Steve Miller, Melissa Copenhaver and Kimberly Weidner will oversee the polls and tabulate and announce the winners in the race to elect a mayor and two town commissioners. Only Copenhaver has experience on the board.
Rising Sun voters go to the polls Oct. 16 to elect a mayor and two town commissioners. Both voters and candidates must be registered by Sept. 15, with candidates getting an extra hour to appear at Rising Sun Town Hall to file. Calvin Bonenberger, town administrator, said the candidate deadline is 6 p. m.
Town officials knew they would have at least one election board seat to fill with the April death of Mar y Lou Benjamin.
