Like all across the country, voters in Western Alaska went to the polls on November 5th.

In Nome, the items on the ballot were relatively few: a run-off contest for a city council seat and an advisory vote on whether to add fluoride to the municipal water supply.

The vote, albeit in an “off” year, still touched upon issues that have frequented the daily broadcasts of KNOM News: namely, city management and public health. Like always, our on-air staff helped remind our listeners of where to vote on election day and brought them the results of their vote. Thanks to you, our mission strives to keep our listeners not only entertained, but also informed and civically-minded.
