It could be a quick night for election returns in the Lake Area barring any unforeseen circumstances with only a very short list of locally contested races and issues appearing on the ballots. As a matter of fact, Morgan County has the only contested local race with democrat Roy Bowman going head-to-head with republican Colleen Richardson-Richey for the position of Assessor. Issues to be decided include the Mid-County Fire Protection tax levy swap and the Climax Springs School bond issue. The polls opened at 6am and will close at 7pm tonight. KRMS will start our election night coverage at 7 o’clock.
