Tuesday is election day and there are many local races and issues to be decided, including school board races in Asher and McLoud, an Earlsboro bond issue, Bethel Acres municipal races as well as a county sales tax election in Lincoln County.

Bethel Acres

Voters in Bethel Acres will decide who represents them on the town board of trustees in Wards 3 and 5.

Candidates for the Trustee Ward 3 and 5 seats, with unexpired terms to 2019, are:

• Ward 3: Wesley Bynum Jr., Tony Carlile, Nick Loman and Shawn Johnson.

• Ward 5: Robert M. Smith Jr., Blake Freeman, Timothy Belair and Karen L. Jones.

School board seats

School board elections are being held throughout the Tri-County area. Here in Pottawatomie County, voters in the Asher and McLoud school district will decide school board seats.

In Asher, a race will be held for Office No. 3 between Michael Martin and Adam Kuhlman.

In another race, Tim Dobbs, and Frank Orman are vying for Office No. 1 unexpired 3 year term in Asher.

In McLoud, Randy Patterson and Bobby Howard are vying for the Office No. 3 seat.

Earlsboro School bond issue

Voters in the Earlsboro School District will vote on a $525,000 bond issue that would allow the district to make significant renovations to the district's buildings.

If passed, there will be no increase in property taxes because the bond will replace an existing bond.

The $525,000 will go toward remodeling the high school, adding ceramic tile throughout the school and completely renovating the science room, new telephone and security systems, new roof on the cafeteria, new heating and air conditioning units throughout the schools, new lights for the softball field and new locks and doors in the elementary and high school.

School bond issues must pass with a 60 percent supermajority.

Lincoln County sales tax measure

Voters in Lincoln County will decide a sales tax issue, which would renew the county's current one-cent sales tax.

The proposition asks if Lincoln County should levy a 1 percent countywide sales tax beginning Jan. 1, 2019 and being limited to a five-year duration, with funds allocated as follows:

• 60 percent to county road and bridge improvements

• 13 percent to the Lincoln County jail

• 6 percent to the Lincoln County Extension center, capped at $120,000

• 7 percent to the Senior Citizen Nutrition Sites

• 8.5 percent to Lincoln County Fire Departments

• 2 percent to the Lincoln County Free Fair

• 2 percent to Economic Development

• 1.5 percent to Emergency Management and Lincoln County Safety Office

Any money over capped amounts would go to the Lincoln County courthouse improvement fund.
