November Election Ballot Finalized

The Putnam County Election Commission has given approval to the ballot which will be used for the state's General Election in November. That ballot will include elections for the office of governor, as well as U.S. Congress, State Senator, and State Representative. In addition, voters in the city of Cookeville will see a referendum on whether to approve the legal sale of alcoholic beverages in retail stores, while voters in Algood will determine whether to allow the legal sale of alcohol for on-premises consumption. What will NOT be on the ballot is a referendum on the 1981 Financial Management Act. The county commission met in special session last night to consider a resolution on that issue, but voted 18-to-5 to take no action.
