For Moffat County Clerk and Recorder Elaine Sullivan, Tuesday will be one she won’t soon forget. And even though she has done it twice before, she doesn’t think the day’s activities will be any less moving.

Moffat County GOP sheriff, clerk, surveyor candidates cruise into general election

While some Moffat County Republican candidates had a nail-biting night Tuesday during the primary election, it was smooth sailing into November’s general election for three uncontested candidates.

They move on to the general election, and possibly into public office in January 2011. As of now, there are no Democratic or write-in challengers for the any county positions, save for Tami Barnes for Moffat County Commission, District 2.
