250 Midway voters who received absentee ballots without City Council race will get supplemental ballots

Mayor Grayson Vandegrift reports, "The 250 Midway residents who had already received their absentee ballots will be sent a separate ballot with the City Council race. They can either place both ballots in the same envelope or, if they already sent the first one, they can put the council ballot in the separate envelope they will be receiving with the second ballot. Everyone receiving absentee ballots in Midway from today on will receive the correct ballot with all races included on one."

Vandegrift's information comes from Woodford County Clerk Sandy Jones, whose office mistakenly sent city residents the ballot for the Midway rural precinct.

Absentee ballots are expected to account for most of the votes in the Nov. 3 election because of the pandemic. The deadline to apply for a ballot is Oct. 9. Early, in-person voting begins Oct. 13.

Ten candidates are running for six seats on the City Council: five incumbents and five non-incumbents. The Midway Woman's Club and the Midway Messenger are holding a forum for the candidates on the Messenger's Facebook page and You Tube from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 5.
