Updated Voter information for Saturday, May 10, 2014 Election Day
LAST day to vote in local city, school board, school bond and sales tax elections!
Click on the links below for information on the particular races in your precinct!
If you do not see a special link for your school district or city listed, that means these taxing entities had NO election information on a website! It is stunning how many make NO information available to the folks who pay the bills! In a couple of instances, we found some information in a local newspaper.
