Typo On Montezuma County Ballots Won't Change Election Results

KSJD Illustration

Montezuma County’s ballots contain a minor error, but it shouldn’t affect the election in any way.

The ballots list both incumbent county commissioners up for re-election as running for the District 3 seat. However, Larry Don Suckla represents that district, while Keenan Ertel is actually in District 2. Both men are running unopposed, as unaffiliated candidates. County clerk and recorder Kim Percell said in an email that all votes for Ertel will be tallied for District 2.
