POWELL COUNTY CLERK & RECORDER -- ELECTIONS

 

NOTICE OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT REVIEW ELECTION

At the June 3rd, 2014 primary election, voters in the City of Deer Lodge and County of Powell voted for the review of their governments.

The local government review was initiated by Article XI, Section 9 of the 1972 Constitution and the first review was conducted in 1974.  Required every ten years, the local government review election asks the voters to decide if they want to elect study commissions to review their city and county governments.

Since a majority of the electors voted in favor of having a study commission to examine the form of local governments, the study commission members will be elected at the November 4, 2014 general election.

Interested individuals can now file as a candidate for the two study commissions with the County Election Administrator.  There is no filing fee, and the race is nonpartisan.  Candidates must be electors of the local government for which the study commission has been established, and cannot be elected officials of the local government.  Filing for the positions of study commission members are now open as the primary election results have been certified, and will close at 5:00 P.M. on August 21, 2014. 

The purpose of the study commission is to study the existing form and powers of the local government and compare them with other forms available under the laws of the state.  The study commission members must write a report detailing their recommendations for changes to the local government.

The final report of the study commission is presented to the voters of the local government for approval or rejection.  The report must be presented to the registered electors for a vote no later than the 2016 general election (November 8, 2016).

For more information on this election, please contact the Powell County Election Administrator at 406-846-9723.
