Special Election in Mineral Springs Passes

Tuesday’s special election in Mineral Springs to change the city council term length from two years to four years has passed. Howard County Clerk Keri Teague says the proposal passed on a 10 to 4 vote. There was a total of one early vote. She says this means that all of the council seats will be on the ballot in May. Only the two positions in Ward 1 will serve four year terms, with Ward 2 four year terms being implemented in 2020.  The results are unofficial until certified by the election commission.
