How did early voting affect Election Day?

HAYSVILLE, Kan. (AP) _ A 1-cent retail sales tax was approved in Haysville, but not by much.

The Sedgwick County Election office says the tax for road maintenance and parks and recreation programs passed Tuesday with 284 voting yes, and 267 opposed. The city's sale tax will now be 8.5 percent.

The city plans to use funds from the tax to widen some roads and add recreation programs.

The new tax takes effect July 1. City officials estimate it will raise nearly $500,000 each year until it expires in 10 years.
