Utah town forgets to hold election for second time



A mountain town in the state of Utah had to skip an election after officials forgot to advertise or prepare for it.

The Wasatch County town of Wallsburg, population 275, says it will just keep its mayor and council for two more years.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports it wasn't the first time the mountain town flubbed an election.

State elections director Mark Thomas says Wallsburg didn't schedule an election two years ago either, and the council members had to be appointed then as well. The appointees were supposed to go up for election earlier this month.

Wasatch County Clerk Brent Titcomb says Wallsburg will get another chance in 2015 to get it right.

Wallsburg is southeast of Salt Lake City.
