Board of Supervisors Announces Snow Creek District Vacancy

With the recent passing of Supervisor Leland Mitchell on July 30, 2022, a vacancy has been created on the Franklin County Board of Supervisors for the Snow Creek District seat. At their Special Called Meeting held August 3, 2022, the Board of Supervisors authorized staff to forward a petition to the Circuit Court of Franklin County to issue a writ of special election to fill the vacancy during the next general election on November 8, 2022. A decision from the Circuit Court is expected within the coming days. 

If the special election is certified by the Circuit Court judge, interested candidates will need to contact the Franklin County Voter Registrar’s Office to file specific documents in order to qualify to appear on the ballot. 

In the meantime, the Board will consider the appointment of a qualified voter of the Snow Creek election district to fill the vacancy on an interim basis until the Special Election is held and the person so elected has qualified. View full press release here.
