Three months from today, Minot School District patrons will have a chance to vote on a major change to the district.
And they'll have lots of places to cast their votes.
The school board voted today to approve 11 polling sites for the December 10th school bond election.
At issue is a plan to sell up to 125-million dollars in bonds to remodel, add on to, and construct new school buildings, including a new, second high school for the rapidly-growing district.
Voters will be able to cast ballots at nearly all elementary schools and at both middle schools.
Superintendent Mark Vollmer says he hopes every resident will vote.
(Mark Vollmer, Minot Superintendent) "Whatever side of the issue you're on, the magic and the part of this process that's important is that this is ultimately the say of our community as to what direction they want our school district to go. So we ask people to become educated. Learn about the facts. Learn about where our enrollment numbers are and to be an active member of the process."
Again, the date for the school bond election is December 10th with eleven polling places around the city.
