November 2016 Ballot & Voter Information

  • Ballots are due November 8, 2016. Photo from King County Elections. Here is information we posted prior to the November 2016 election about timing and voting:

    Why run the bond in November? Three reasons:

    • Higher than average voter turnout is expected, due to the presidential election, so more community members will participate in the decision.
    • Sharing the ballot with other measures reduces the costs the district must pay the county for the election.
    • With construction costs rising, the sooner construction begins the less expensive it will be. 
    Voting Facts
    • In Washington, a school bond measure must be approved by 60 percent of the vote.
    • All voting in Washington is done by mail.
    • Ballots are mailed about three weeks prior to an election day. 
    • Ballots must be returned by November 8.
