No need to wait until Aug. 21 to vote in the primary election — anyone may register and vote in advance right now, right up to the primary day.
Simply stop by the clerk’s office between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday in the Teton County administration building, 220 S. Willow St. (the same building where you register a car or pick up stickers for license plates).
And as a sage man often reminds us, you need to have lived here only a minute to vote.
This way, come Aug. 21, you won’t be caught backpacking in the Winds or working a double shift without having cast a ballot.
The field for Town Council just got a little less crowded. Councilor Greg Miles is dropping out of the race, narrowing the field to eight candidates for two seats. (The top four will advance from the primary.)
Miles announced his intention at last night’s council meeting and also posted a message to friends on Facebook, saying he is stepping aside to “allow some new ideas to come forward.” Miles said he wants to support his wife, Melinda Binks, who is producing a TV show in Los Angeles, and looks forward to working in the private sector again as a housing developer.
