Knox absentee balloting now underway

By Bobbie Poynter

The Knox County Clerk’s office is accepting absentee ballots now through Nov. 4 for anyone who will be out of the county on Election Day.

Absentee ballots will also be accepted for anyone confined to a military base, in their third trimester of pregnancy, or have a surgery scheduled on Election Day.

Those who are disabled can call the clerk’s office at 546-3568 and request a paper ballot. Paper requests must be made and returned to the clerk’s office as soon as possible so their votes will be assured of being counted.

Knox superintendent responds to recallable nickel tax petition

 

With over 2,600 signatures filed on time with the county clerk to petition the ‘recallable nickel tax,” it seems very likely the petition will be validated by the Knox County clerk’s office within the next 30 days. In lieu of the possibility, Knox County Schools Superintendent Kelly Sprinkles remains positive that the building of a new Knox County Area Technology Center will happen.

“I still believe this is best for our community, our kids,” said Sprinkles.

In the event the petition is validated by the county clerk’s office, Sprinkles said it is highly unlikely the school board will opt for a special election. The board will probably wait and add it onto next year’s election ballot.

Conway tries to preserve Ky. electioneering law

LOUISVILLE, KY. — Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway turned to a federal appeals court Wednesday in his effort to preserve a state law that bans electioneering close to polling places, calling the buffer zone an important safeguard against Election Day shenanigans.

With the general election less than three weeks away, Conway moved quickly with his motion to the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in an effort to keep the law in place — pending an appeal — to insulate voters from campaign activities outside the polls.
