The extended nomination period for positions on one municipal council and on four local advisory councils (LACs) in rural Yukon ended on Sept. 29.
Haines Junction had officially acclaimed three councillors and now has three nominees for that one remaining council position — Bill Karman, Rob Moore and Diane Strand. Other than that, nothing has changed on the municipal election front.
Mayo will be the only municipality without an election on Oct. 21 since all the candidates were aclaimed. Residents of the rural municipalities of Dawson, Carmacks, Teslin, Haines Junction, Watson Lake and Faro will be voting on Oct. 21 along with Whitehorse people to select mayors, or council positions or both.
