Tuesday is election day in Davis County. Voters will go to the polls to choose between a new Davis County Law Center or housing prisoners out of county.

All Bloomfield voters and those living in the Cleveland Township island will vote at the fire station. All other voters will vote at their normal polling places. The polls will be open from noon to 8 p.m. Tuesday night.
