It’s Election Day Tuesday. Kansans are heading to the polls to vote in the mid-term election.
Locally in Salina there is one contested state legislative race, with incumbent representative Clarke Sanders being challenged by Sarah Crews. Also of local interest, Salina area farmer and former state representative Steven Johnson is running for state treasurer.
Free transportation to polling places is available in Salina on election day.
