"Wallsburg [pop. 275] never advertised or prepared for an election this year, so no one signed up," Wasatch County Clerk Brent Titcomb told the Salt Lake Tribune. "They’re going to have to appoint the current mayor and council for two more years and they’ll advertise and have people elected [in 2015]."
Mayor Jay Hortin and his council benefited from the small town's forgetfulness two years ago as well, when the municipal elections also passed by unannounced.
Hortin's dad insists his son isn't doing it on purpose, and that even if the elections were held, he would probably have run unopposed.
Titcomb, meanwhile, promises to shoot Wallsburg an e-mail come 2015.
