There are six ballots available for different voters in the Kay County election on Tuesday, June 28. The ballot will depend on the voter’s party affiliation as well as their home location.
There is a county-wide Republican primary ballot which will vote for a U.S. Representative, as well as the next Kay County Sheriff. All of the candidates are registered as Republicans, so other voters will not cast a ballot for the office. The candidates for Representative are Desiree Brown and Frank D. Lucas. The Sheriff candidates are Steve Kelley, Brian Herbert and Tom Burg.
Part of the Republican ballot includes the county-wide question on permitting the sale of alcoholic beverages by individual drink for on-premise consumption on Sunday and on any election days. This question is also on ballots for other parties.
Libertarian voters will choose a candidate for U.S. Senator, choosing between Robert T. Murphy and
Newkirk voters will decide a proposition to issue bonds for $100,000 to fund school buildings, furniture and improvements.
Tonkawa voters will decide on a 10-year, 1.5 cent sales tax to pay for infrastructure for the community, including streets, sidewalks, water, sewer and drainage systems.
Blackwell voters are asked to vote on a 1-cent sales tax which would end in 2021 and would be used to provide financial support for Blackwell’s hospital, or in the event it closes, for other emergency medical services.
