Polls open for Lawton 2016 CIP Election

LAWTON, Okla._ Lawton citizens will have the chance to vote Tuesday on funding for alternative water sources through the 2016 Capital Improvement Program. 

The city is considering water re-use and ground water wells to stay ahead of the next dry spell. They estimate ground water wells would give Lawton an additional ten-million gallons of water per day. Officials believe the 2016 CIP will accrue about $130 million dollars over the next ten years, $60 million of which would be designated to alternative water sources.This is not an increase in sales tax, but a continuation of the current program through 2025. The polls opened at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. 

Some Lawton voters will have to cast their ballots at different precincts. If you used to vote at Holy Cross Lutheran Church, you will now cast your ballot at Learning Tree Academy, located at 1908 Northwest 38th Street.

If you used to vote at Park Lane Elementary School, you will now use the Church of Christ at Park Lane, located at 4906 Southeast Avalon.
Remember you have to show your drivers license, a government ID or voter registration card to vote. 

Be sure to watch 7NEWS tonight for the election results and reaction.
