FUNKSTOWN -- With Funkstown's town election just a little more than a month away, prospective voters and prospective candidates are facing some deadlines.
The last day to register to vote in the May 5 election is Monday, April 7, at 4 p.m.
Anyone wishing to file for a seat on the town council must do so by the filing deadline of Monday, April 14, at 4 p.m., according to Brenda Haynes, town clerk.
Voter registration and filing for candidacy both can be done at Town Hall, Haynes said.
Positions open in the election include the vice mayor's post currently held by Paul N. Crampton Jr. and council seats held by John Phillips III, Sharon Chirgott and Robert D. Rodgers Jr.
As of March 25, Crampton had filed for the position of vice mayor.
Phillips and Chirgott filed to run for re-election to the council, and two newcomers, Nathen Graybill and Barry Warrenfeltz, had filed to run for council seats as of Tuesday. The top three vote-getters for council will win those seats in the May 5 election.
