In keeping with social distancing precautions, on Thursday, April 9, Mercer County Clerk Paula Sollami Covello’s office will hold the legally required ballot drawing for the June 2 Primary Election via Facebook Live. For this reason, reporters and members of the public should avoid coming to the County Clerk’s Office.
Deputy Clerk Walker Worthy will conduct the drawing due to the fact that County Clerk Paula Sollami Covello is on the ballot this year.
To watch, please go to the Mercer County Clerk Paula Sollami Covello Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/MercerCountyClerk/.
