In November, Johnson County voters will be asked to decide whether the county should keep the current system or switch to the direct election of the 18 district court judges and four magistrates in Johnson County District Court.
Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday in three De Soto locations as voters chose candidates for the November general election and decide the fate of the proposed quarter-cent public safety sales tax.
The Republican primary was set up by a GOP caucus two years ago.
The De Soto Board of Education Monday approved 4-1 to publish the 2008-09 proposed budget that includes about $16 million more in expenditures than last year's budget. Board member Bill Fletcher dissented; board members Randy Johnson and Jim Thomas were absent from the meeting. The board will have a budget hearing at its next meeting at 6 p.m. Aug. 4.
