More than 1,200 Douglas County voters have cast a ballot so far in this election, according to the Clerk-Treasurer’s Office. Of those, 957 Republicans have voted early or absentee, while 226 Democrats have come to the polls. Tuesday’s early voting was busier than Saturday’s.

Minden Town Board members will hear from Wildrose residents who are ready to see the speed hump between 2nd Street at the town boundary hit the trail. The Town Board meets 5:30 p.m. in the CVIC Hall.

The Genoa Town Board meets 6:30 p.m. and will discuss a permit for a Sept. 3 music festival hosted by the Greater Genoa Business Association. Also up is a request to purchase four decorative stop sign posts for the intersection of Main and Nixon streets.
