With Only Three Applicants, Cache GOP Cancels Special Election For Cache County Attorney

Jul 20, 2021

The Cache County Republican Party has cancelled a special election for the recently vacated Cache County attorney position due to a lack of applicants.

According to a statement from Cache GOP Chair Chris Booth, under Republican Party Bylaws and Utah State code, the party was responsible for nominating three candidates to the Cache County Council. However, the special election in this instance is unnecessary.

 

“Since only three individuals filed,” Booth wrote in the statement, “there is no need to hold a special election.” Read the rest of the story on HJnews.com.
