Logan County prepares for election

Send a link to a friend

[MARCH 15, 2004]  On Tuesday (March 16) polling places will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. in Logan County for a partisan election. What a partisan election means is that you vote one party or another. You are selecting the person you want representing your party for the general election.

Nonpartisan referendums are also permitted on the ballot in this election. There is a 9-1-1 referendum requesting an increase of a $1.10 telephone surcharge. The request is on all three ballots.

You will have a choice between a Republican, Democratic or nonpartisan ballot. Logan County Clerk Sally Litterly stated, "There's no shame in asking for one party or the other. When you walk into your polling place, the election judge will say, 'What kind of ballot would you like?'"

People who don't want to declare one party or another, but do wish to vote on the referendum can ask for a nonpartisan ballot. If you choose nonpartisan, all you get to vote on is the referendum -- no offices, just the 9-1-1 referendum.

The only contest in Logan County is the coroner's race. All three candidates are Republican. If you want to vote for a coroner candidate, you will need to ask for a Republican ballot.

You cannot vote on the Democratic presidential candidates and Republican coroner candidates at the same time.
