Early voting for the at-large council member position underway

Early voting for the Bemidji City Councilmember At-Large seat began late last month and will continue through Feb. 8. Early voting can only be done at City Hall.

The special election to fill the at-large seat, left vacant by Jim “Doc” Thompson’s resignation last summer, will be held on Feb. 9 and will use all city precincts.

The two candidates are former at-large council member Dave Larson and newcomer Daniel Jourdain.
