Election results to be available at Guardonline.com

As always, the Batesville Daily Guard will provide the latest election results for Independence County tonight on the website, Guardonline.com.

Polls close at 7:30 and after that the poll workers will close up the voting machines and bring them to the courthouse so the election commission may tally the results.

Races to be posted on Guardonline.com include: Independence County justice of the peace (positions 3, 6, 7, 9 and 11); Batesville City Council Ward 3 (positions 1 and 2); special countywide tax for the fire department; the Sharp County wet-dry issue; Senate District 19; House of Representatives districts 52, 62 and 63; and two of the statewide issues on the ballot (state highway tax and medical marijuana act).

Viewers do not have to be a subscriber to view the tallies, but may need to refresh their page to get the latest results.

Note: Besides the Sharp County wet-dry issue, the results posted on the Guard’s website will be for Independence County only. A full report on the general election will be listed in Wednesday’s Guard.
