Comprehensive Voter Guide for Both Ray and Clay Counties

As part of a continued effort to help educate citizens on what will appear before them on the ballot, this week we are offering a look at the ballot for our Ray County Excelsiorites. We have also included a collective of what we feel may be helpful resources for all in the lead up to election day. Check out our previous coverage, including the Clay County sample ballot and a look at the Constitutional Amendments that will be on the ballot, too.
