Polls are open until 7 today

There are six ballots available for different voters in the Kay County election today. Each voter will receive a ballot based on the voter’s party affiliation as well as their home location.

All voters will be able to vote on a county-wide question on permitting the sale of alcoholic beverages by individual drink for on-premise consumption on Sunday and on any election days.

There is a county-wide Republican primary ballot 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.

Libertarian voters will choose a candidate for U.S. Senator, choosing between Robert T. Murphy and Dax Ewbank.

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.
