McPHERSON – The City of McPherson will hold a special election on Tuesday, March 12, to decide Sunday Liquor Sales. The vote was prompted by a successful petition organized by several business owners to place the issue on the ballot.
All registered voters residing in the McPherson city limits are eligible to vote. The last day to register is Tuesday, February 19.
Early voting starts Wednesday, February 20, at the McPherson County Courthouse.
Registered voters residing in McPherson, who typically cast a ballot at Trinity Lutheran Church (Ward 1) must report to the former Bank of America building, 122 W. Marlin. The location change was made to accommodate a blood drive already scheduled at the church.
The ballot question will read as follows:
Shall the following be adopted?
