SPENCER MOUNTAIN, N.C. —
No one in Spencer Mountain, not even the incumbents, have signed up to be elected to the mayor's seat and three town council positions.
The tiny town has 29 registered voters, and two years ago, only four people voted. The mayor and three write-ins voted themselves into office.
The board of elections said they are required by the state to hold an election.
“Do you still need a council?” Eyewitness News asked.
“Not really. I don't know if you have to have the council to have the town or not,” said former councilman Scott Botts.
The town of Casar north of Shelby is in the same position.
Grover, south of Shelby, also needs write-ins to fill their three town commissioner seats.
