[2/6/18] Special Election Ballots Due One Week From Today

Posted in Education, Local Government & MeetingsTagged , , , , ,

If you live within the Entiat, Waterville, Pateros or Orondo school districts, you have one week to return their ballot for next Tuesday’s Special Election…

020618 Special Election Ballots 1 :05 “…already received their ballot.”

That’s Auditor, Skip Moore, Chelan County’s Chief Election Official…

020618 Special Election Ballots 2 :24 “…can use that dropbox.”

Pateros, Tonasket, Oroville, Orondo, Waterville, Cashmere and Entiat are all running replacement levy’s –which require a 50% plus one vote for passage.

Cashmere and Omak are also both seeking voter approval on bond issues. That requires a 60% super majority vote for passage.

Chelan County Auditor Skip Moore is hoping for a better voter turnout than last fall’s General Election with just 35% of voters statewide bothering to cast a ballot…

020618 Special Election Ballots 3 :16 “…or a 50% turnout.”

That’s pretty optimistic.

Make sure you get your ballot returned for Tuesday, February 13 Special Election – must be postmarked by the 13th – or dropped into a ballot drop box before 8pm.
