Early Voting in School Bond Election

Posted: Updated:

Another school bond election is coming up in one week.

That's when Minot voters will decide if they'll grant the school board the authority to borrow up to 125-million dollars for new school buildings, including a new high school, and many renovations and security upgrades.

But if you can't wait for election day, polls are open this week at the Ward County Courthouse.

Auditor Devra Smestad says that on election day, a computer system will network all 13 voting sites to prevent any double voting.

(Devra Smestad, Ward County Auditor) "All of them will be connected with the electronic poll book so obviously if you vote in one location and decide to try to go around town and try to vote in another one it's going to show you voted so that won't happen. We're just making sure everything is in order for that and that we have a good election."

The early voting happens only at the county courthouse from 11am to 6pm each day through Thursday.

Polls on election day next Tuesday will be open at all elementary schools in the city of Minot, plus Jim Hill and Erik Ramstad Middle Schools from 7am to 7pm.

The bond issue requires a yes vote from 60% of the voters to pass.
