Voter turnout for Tuesday’s city election was down slightly from the most recent municipal election election but still significantly higher than 2009, the last election year before Craig moved to mail-only ballots.

Election results in: Carwile wins; most other incumbents not as fortunate

Terry Carwile will retain his seat as mayor of Craig after defeating councilman Ray Beck in Tuesday’s municipal election. Other incumbents didn’t fare as well.

Just 2 days left to cast ballots in Craig's mayor and council election

This year’s municipal election features two candidates vying to be mayor and six candidates competing for either three or four council seats, depending on the outcome in the mayor’s race.

With 3 days until Election Day, voter turnout remains low

Moffat County Clerk and Recorder’s Office officials said that as of Thursday afternoon they had received only 750 completed mail ballots from Craig voters. While that number was expected to increase as additional ballots were collected Friday, officials acknowledged they would like to see better turnout.
