Liquor, fire and schools on ballots in Garfield County


ENID, Okla. — Pond Creek-Hunter

Voters in the Pond Creek- Hunter school district will take to the polls Tuesday to be heard on an $11.5 million bond question.

School board member Micah Barr said several projects are on the agenda if the initiative passes.

“One of the most important things we’d like to do is, we need a new HVAC unit for the high school,” Barr said.

Two construction projects the district hopes to accomplish are a gymnasium and a multi-purpose safe room where students, and possibly members of the community as well, would be safe in the event of a tornado or other incident. Because of the proximity of a water tower, an above-ground safe room is planned.

New windows also are on the district’s wish list.

Voter assistance

Sample ballots are available at the election board and will be posted outside every precinct polling place today, said Roy Schneider, Garfield County Election Board Secretary.

A number of people are eligible for assistance at their polling places. Voters who are physically disabled and need help marking their ballots, blind or visually disabled voters and illiterate voters may be assisted by a person the voter chooses.

In all cases, a person providing such assistance may not be the voter’s employer or an agent of the employer or an officer or agent of the employee’s union. People assisting voters must swear or affirm ballots will be marked in accordance with the voter’s wishes, Schneider said.

Voters who have moved since the last election but have not transferred their registration may do so on election day by going where their registration has been in the past. While voting, they may fill out a form instructing the county election board to transfer their registration to the new address before the next election.
