Last call to file for candidates not in a primary
The filing period for all elected positions in the county — including townships, school districts and municipalities — without a primary election ends Tuesday, Aug. 14.
Carlton County Auditor Paul Gassert said candidates should file in person with the appropriate filing officer — usually a clerk — for cities, townships and school districts.
Several cities in Carlton County will elect a mayor and two council members: Barnum, Carlton, Cromwell, Kettle River, Moose Lake, Scanlon, Wrenshall and Wright.
School districts in Barnum, Carlton, Cloquet, Cromwell-Wright, Moose Lake, Esko and Wrenshall will elect three board members each.
Candidates can find election information at sos.state.mn.us in the “Election Administration & Campaigns” section.
