News

CHEROKEE COUNTY, Kans. — Tuesday was Election Day in southwest Missouri and southeast Kansas. Voters began hitting the polls at 7 AM.

In Cherokee County, residents have been casting their ballots on a number of races and issues. Cherokee County Clerk and Election Officer Kyle Rennie says voter turnout was relatively low during the day — but higher in areas with key races. Early voting in the county began last week.

“It’s going smooth. We have spent a lot of time preparing and that is the success of the Election Day — the preparation. Today is quiet. We’ve been to all the polling locations just to make sure everything’s going smooth and we have a quiet day, which is an indicator of a good day,” said Rennie.

Polls closed at 7 PM in Kansas and Missouri.
