Deadline for board nominations this Friday

Several local boards have openings this election cycle.

RBC | As election season churns along at a national level, here in Rio Blanco County residents have a few days left to self-nominate for a smorgasbord of, well, boards. Elections are set for May 5, 2020.

Local boards can directly affect the lives of residents in good and bad ways, and are directly responsible for managing funds that, in many cases, come directly from the pockets of taxpayers.

Friday, February 28, is the last day to submit required paperwork to Designated Election Officials (DEOs), and it’s prudent to submit packets at least a few days early in case of any problems.

The following local boards, in no particular order, have open seats available:
