KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) - Mohave County officials say an election will decide who takes over the county supervisor seat left vacant following Joy Brotherton’s death.

The Kingman Daily Miner reports (https://bit.ly/1sZFTOe) that the Arizona Association of Counties says state law requires a general election be held if a vacancy occurs within the first two years of a term and before the nomination deadline.

County Supervisor Buster Johnson says the board will appoint a resident from District 4 to serve until the November election.

The AAC says with the deadline for nominating petition signatures next Wednesday, candidates may also run as write-ins.

The winning candidate would serve out the remaining two years of Brotherton’s term.

Brotherton died Monday after being hospitalized for a blood infection.

The 74-year-old was elected to the board in 2012.
