The number of absentee ballots cast for today’s elections in Grundy County equals last year’s total. As of the late afternoon deadline on Monday, a total of 132 absentee ballots were completed, including 29 who voted absentee yesterday at the Grundy County Courthouse. Another 14 requested ballots were still out and could be returned in the mail on Tuesday (today).

In addition to numerous issues on election ballots today, voters are also deciding on candidates for city councils, boards of education, and other entities.

Among them, the Trenton R-9 School District has three candidates seeking two positions on the Board of Education. The city of Trenton has one unopposed candidate in each of the four wards. There are four candidates for three positions on the Grundy County Health Department board.

An issue on ballots in Galt proposes establishing a five percent tax on existing franchises and business licenses to include other utility and service providers such as electric, telephone, and telecommunications providers. Harrison Township (Grundy County) voters are deciding whether to issue $131,000 in general obligation road bonds to purchase equipment and make road improvements.

The polling sites are open until 7 p.m. this evening. John Anthony will be on the air on KTTN FM 92.3 providing live election results after the polls close. The results will be announced as they become available, interrupting, at times, the Kansas City Royals baseball broadcast. The live election results are also available on our live internet stream, which can be accessed via the KTTN website.

The coverage is sponsored by Dillon Harp and State Farm Insurance of Trenton.
