I voted sticker

The polls are open until 8 p.m. today for the Eastern Carver County Schools referendum.

The ballot will ask three questions:

  • Question 1 includes an operating levy increase by $550 per pupil, subject to an annual inflationary increase, applicable for 10 years.
  • Question 2 is a $111,675,000 bond request to build a new elementary school, address deferred maintenance and building repair projects across the district, and acquire a larger bus garage. Question 2 can pass only if Question 1 is approved.
  • Question 3 asks whether to continue an existing security and technology levy for 10 years.
