No, your eyes aren't deceiving you.
So far, this is the list of people who have confirmed publically with the Guardian their intentions regarding the upcoming Local Government elections for Cowra Council.
The list so far includes former councillor, Ruth Fagan, who has confirmed she will stand again.
There are just eight days before nominations close for election to Cowra Shire Council at 12 noon, Wednesday August 8.
It is six weeks until NSW local government polling booths open on Saturday, September 8.
The looming polls have the NSW Electoral Commission advising that 64 returning officers are hard at work in offices across the state.
NSW Electoral Commissioner Colin Barry is highlighting the work and experience of returning officers.
"Returning officers will be busy preparing for the candidate nomination process, handling enrolment inquiries, recruiting and conducting training for office staff as well as election day staff, processing postal vote requests, setting up pre-poll centres and visiting declared institutions in preparation for voting," he said.
"These are fully trained officers, many of them with previous experience who are responsible for running elections in 136 council areas on behalf of the NSW Electoral Commission."
Returning officers are working out of 29 metropolitan and 34 regional offices in NSW, 36 of them responsible for more than one council election.
