Local Elections Nearing End

MM - 1

People across Manhattan will head to the polls on Nov. 7 to elect city commission and school board members. For those who want to beat the rush, Monday will be the last day of advanced voting.

The Chamber’s Business Advocacy Committee worked up a half dozen questions for each of the 10 candidates for the USD 383 School Board, and the nine candidates for the Manhattan City Commission. These candidate questionnaires are designed to allow Chamber members, and the general voting public, insight into the candidates’ feelings on issues important to the Chamber, like private sector job growth, housing, budgeting, taxation and much more.

Here are the links to the candidates’ responses to Chamber questionnaires:
City Commission Candidates
School Board Candidates

This is an unusual city election in that four seats on the 7-member school board are on this years’ ballot, along with four of five city commission seats. Normally, there would be three, but the decision earlier this year by Sen. Usha Reddi to step down from the City Commission to devote her energies full time to the state Senate, prompted the fourth vacancy. 

Advance voting is available all week at both the Riley County Courthouse and Pottawatomie County Courthouse:

Monday, October 30 – Friday, November 3, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Saturday, November 4, 8 a.m. – Noon

FINAL DAY OF ADVANCE VOTING: Monday, November 6, 8 a.m. – Noon

On Election Day, Tuesday, November 7, vote at your traditional polling place:
Riley County
Pottawatomie County

If unsure, check here to determine where to vote on Election Day.

Remember that each votes counts, particularly in local elections, and make the time to let your voice be heard.
