Daily Leader- Earl Watt

Local residents line up at the electronic voting machines this morning at the Seward County Activity Center to cast their ballots.

The pace for voters appeared to be a record turnout as lines formed early. In the first hour, more than 400 votes had been cast with a steady stream of voters entering the Activity Center. Results are expected around 8 p.m. tonight.

Doug Gonzales receives a flu shot from Seward County Community College nursing student Chelsea Andrews. “I just thought it was convenient to come out and vote and get my shot at the same time,” Gonzales said. Gonzales is a recource consultant for the Cimarron Basin Community Corrections and was one of about 30 people who received a flu vaccination shot in the first hour of the polls being opened.

The shots were coordinated through the Seward County Health Dept.
