BROKEN BOW— The recall election ballots for Broken Bow Mayor Jonathon Berghorst have been sent out to the registered voters in Broken Bow. Voters can return their ballots through the mail or they can be delivered in-person to the Custer County Clerk’s Office in the Custer County Courthouse.

Regardless if ballots will be delivered in person or through the mail, the ballots must be physically in the County Clerk’s Office no later than 5 PM on Tuesday, January 14.

The ballot contains only one question which is, “Shall Jonathon Berghorst be removed from the office of the Mayor of the City of Broken Bow.” The voter is then to fill in the oval that is next to “Yes” or “No” in pencil or black or blue ink.

Ballots that arrive after the 5 PM deadline on Tuesday, January 14 will be marked as rejected and kept on file, along with the counted ballots, for 22 months and then shredded according to Custer County Clerk Connie Gracey.
