It appears that at least one write-in candidate will be elected to the Baker City Council Nov. 4.
That's because just three people have qualified for the ballot, which will include four openings.
City Recorder Luke Yeaton said this morning that three candidates qualified for the ballot before the deadline at 5 p.m. Tuesday: Benjamin Merrill, R. Mack Augenfeld and James Thomas.
With fewer candidates than vacancies, the qualified person who receives the most write-in votes will also be elected.
