West Jordan - Ten West Jordan residents have declared their candidacy in the 2015 municipal election for City Council, each hoping to fill one of the four open seats.  

The Primary Election for the seats in Districts 1-4 will take place Aug. 11, and the General Election Day is Nov. 3. Those candidates chosen by West Jordan residents will be sworn into office Jan. 4, 2016 and will hold their councilmember positions for four years.  

District one candidates: Barry L. Bell, Christopher M. McConnehey, Kevin L. Mertin and Jay Thomas

District two candidates: Dirk Burton and Judith M. Hansen

District three candidates: Zach Jacob and Tim McConnehey

District four candidates: Alan R. Anderson and Sophie Rice

To vote, West Jordan residents who are not already registered should do so in person eight days prior to the election at the County Clerk’s office, or seven days prior online. 

Those who prefer to vote by mail should have their voter registration forms postmarked 30 days prior to the election. Ballots for the primary election will be mailed out by July 14, and by October 6 for the general election.
