Idyllwild Fire Protection District (IFPD) Commissioner Lloyd Vaught said today, August 6, prior to a scheduled interview with the Town Crier that he intends to resign for reasons of health.
Vaught said he had tried to get his name taken off the ballot but it was too late to do so. Vaught said he would inform IFPD President Paul Riggi today of his decision.
We are researching, with the Registrar of Voters, how his resignation this close to an election would effect results in the event he is voted in.
We will update this blog with information from the Registrar once we receive it.
A reminder to voters - this is a mail in ballot election. There will be no polling places for walk in voting. What you have received in the mail is not a sample ballot. It is your mailed in ballot. Mailed ballots must be received by the Registrar no later than 8 p.m. on August 25th.
