Polling places open Tuesday

November 1, 2007

Polls in Eudora will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday.

Questions on the ballot will include Eudora USD 491's $45 million bond referendum and the city of Eudora's Charter Ordinance No. 10.

Polling places are:

  • Districts 50 (west Eudora) and 54 (central Eudora): Eudora Recreation Center, 1638 Elm St.
    ¢ District 52 (north Eudora): Eudora City Hall, 4 E. 7th St.
    ¢ District 53 (south Eudora): Eudora Township Fire Station, 310 E. 20th St.

Douglas County Clerk Jameson Shew said a vote of "yes" on Charter Ordinance No. 10 means the voter grants the mayor, with the approval of the city council, the ability to appoint department heads for two-year terms. A vote of "no" means the voter does not grant the mayor, with the approval of the city council, the ability to appoint department heads for two-year terms and would keep department head terms at one year.

The deadline for voters to return advance ballots is Friday, Nov. 2.

Voters can cast early ballots up until noon, Monday Nov. 5 at the Douglas County courthouse.

Furthermore, Shew also said that anyone who spends money to organize citizens to vote for or against a measure by Kansas law must file a form with the county to track their expenditures.
