Champaign County polls will be open 6:30 a.m.-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 6, and while there are no local races on ballots, since incumbents have no opposition, voters will determine the outcome of several issues, including three countywide issues.

The county Board of Elections certified four countywide issues, but the Logan-Champaign Mental Health, Drug and Alcohol Services Board pulled an additional 0.3-mill proposal from Nov. 6 ballots.
