CEDAR HILLS – State law requires that all candidates participating in a municipal election shall file campaign disclosure statements seven (7) days prior to the election. Failure to do so shall result in a candidate being disqualified and votes cast for the candidate will not be counted (§10-3-208 (3) and (8)).
Cedar Hills adheres to State Code and election laws in administering each election. Two candidates in the 2017 General Election failed to complete the required Municipal Campaign Financial Disclosure Report by the deadline. After consulting with legal counsel, the Utah County Elections Office, and the Lt. Governor’s Office, we concur that Curt Crosby and Maurice Fernando Navarro have been disqualified as candidates in the Cedar Hills 2017 Municipal General Election.
“We do not want to discourage anyone who has not yet voted and submitted their ballot from participating in this election. Voting is a privilege. There are qualified candidates as well as the PARC Tax proposition on this ballot that are important to Cedar Hills,” stated Cedar Hills Election Officer Colleen A. Mulvey.
A Voter Service Center will be open on Election Day from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Cedar Hills City Office building, located at 10246 North Canyon Road. This service center is to assist voters who did not receive a vote-by-mail ballot. Voters may also bring in their ballots to the Voter Service Center until 8:00 p.m. on Election Day.
