MANHATTAN, Mont.– There’s one person running for mayor of Manhattan, Montana, and he just has to elect himself to win.
The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports Glen Clements was the only person to use to be a write-in prospect for the position on the November ballot. Under Montana law, other write-in votes won’t be counted because he’s the only authorized write-in prospect. If he had used to be an official candidate, all write-in votes would be counted.
The Navy veteran and geological engineer has actually lived in the town of about 1,500 people for six years. Clements stated his neighbors– the city’s secretary and a law enforcement officer– informed him no one was running and motivated him to.
He says he’s delighted to fill the position that nobody else desired.
