Cities are still required to, unless they have a population of less than 2,000 to put the question on a ballot.
A number of precincts, primarily from Linn Creek to the west, will not be open on election day.
Coming up on April 2, voters who normal visit polling places at the Camden County Museum in Linn Creek, Decaturville at the Myetta Missionary Baptist Church, Sunny Slope at Autumn Village Community Center, Camdenton #1 at the VFW hall on South 5, can stay home. As well as voters who would normally cast a ballot at Ozark Bethel Chapel on J Road at the Barnumton precinct and the Climax Springs Civic Center.
According to Camden County Clerk Rowland Todd, it just depends on what entities need to put something on the ballot. When schools and fire districts have nothing or the same number of filings as openings it occasionally happens. Generally as long as they do their required publications and have the same number of filings as they have board positions open they don’t have to have an election for boards.
Cities are still required to, unless they have a population of less than 2,000 to put the question on a ballot. If it is passed they are good for six years, Todd said.
Although the April 2 ballot is light on races and issues, there are several elections around the county that are expected to draw voters to the polls. The race for one seat on the Sunrise Beach Fire Protection District board and the Lake Ozark mayoral race should pull some voters to the polls.
For those who do get out and vote, Todd reminds them to be sure they bring identification. Polls open at 6 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.
For voters who want to vote, but can’t make it to the polls on Tuesday, absentee ballots can be filled out this Saturday from 8:00 am to noon at the county clerk’s office or during normal business hours up until April 1.
