OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- The Ogden City recorder says Weber County didn't publish a notice about early voting by a state-mandated deadline.

Ogden City Recorder Cindi Mansell says the Weber County Clerk Auditor's office published the early voting notice on Oct. 19, three days later than required by state law.

Early voting began on Oct. 21 and runs through Friday.

State law requires a notice listing the dates, times and locations of early voting be published at least five days before it begins.

Weber County Election Administrator Gloria Barrett says she tried to publish the early voting notice on time but couldn't because she and her staff were busy with tasks including absentee balloting.
