AGO Opinions with Topic: ELECTION OF JUSTICES OF THE PEACE IN CITIES HAVING A POPULATION IN EXCESS OF 5000 INHABITANTS
AGO 1950 No. 320 >  August 14, 1950
ELECTION OF JUSTICES OF THE PEACE IN CITIES HAVING A POPULATION IN EXCESS OF 5000 INHABITANTS
ELECTION OF JUSTICES OF THE PEACE IN CITIES HAVING A POPULATION IN EXCESS OF 5000 INHABITANTS

Where a county auditor has knowledge based upon the Federal Census or a preliminary estimate issued by the Bureau of the Census that the population of a city in his county has increased from a number of inhabitants less than 5000 to a number in excess of 5000, he should give notice calling for the election of but one justice of the peace and should prepare his ballots in such a manner that the voters will vote for but one candidate for the office of justice of the peace.
