DILWORTH CITY ELECTION: Steady flow of voters to polls early in the dayDILWORTH, Minn. — Election workers here reported this morning a steady flow of voters taking part in today’s mayoral and City Council elections.
By 9:30 a.m., 130 people had voted at Dilworth’s only polling site in the Dilworth Community Cen-ter, 709 1st Ave. N.W.
Two council members, Chad Olson and Julie Nash, are vying for the mayor’s post. Current Mayor Keith Coalwell did not seek re-election.
Two City Council seats also are up for grabs. Mike Griffin, Jim Aasness and incumbent Ryan Mullikin are competing for those seats.
Many voters this morn-ing said they routinely take part in local elections, so this year was no different.
“I feel obligated,” said Randy Myers, 53, of Dil-worth. “If you’re part of the community, you want to make sure that they keep their I’s dotted and their T’s crossed, otherwise it’s chaos.”
The polling site opened at 7 a.m. and will close at 8 p.m.
