In today's All Things Considered local block from the KERA Newsroom:

Lauren Silverman talks to a few voters at an Oak Cliff polling station before polls close at 7 p.m. Also, Eric Aasen talks with the new president of the Boy Scouts, who says that he's not planning to end the organization's ban on gay adult leaders.

And StateImpact reporter Dave Fehling looks into the disagreement between some water conservation districts and oil companies on where disposal wells are being placed.

You can listen to the segment weekdays at 8:20 a.m. and 6:20 p.m. on KERA 90.1 FM.

Former KERA staffer Krystina Martinez was an assistant producer. She produced local content for Morning Edition and KERANews.org. She also produced The Friday Conversation, a weekly series of conversations with North Texas newsmakers. Krystina was also the backup newscaster for the Texas Standard.
