Ballots for the March elections in Echo and Weston were mailed Friday.

If registered voters in the two towns have not received their election ballots by Wednesday they should call the Elections Department at 278-6256, Director Jim Barrow said.

Weston Mayor Tim Crampton is facing his second recall election since being elected for a second term in 2000. Weston has 304 registered voters; a simple majority of ballots cast will decide if he stays or is removed from office.

The Echo School District has submitted a $3.3 million bond measure to voters to fund improvements to Echo school buildings. If approved, the bond would cost the owner of a $100,000 home about $348 a year to replace the high school and make improvements to the elementary school and cafeteria.

Echo has 463 registered voters. For the school bond to pass 50 percent of the registered voters have to participate in the election and of those 50 percent plus one, for 116, would have to vote for the bond. Not participating in the election has a similar effect as voting no.

Completed ballots must be received at the Courthouse March 11.
