School District Holds Bond Election

Posted: Updated:

Whether it's to vote yes or no, local voters will decide the future of the Minot Public School System tomorrow.

The district is holding a special election to vote on a $125 million bond issue to enhance the current school district.

 This includes, building new schools and adding onto existing buildings, as well as adding safety and security measures in all the schools.

Polling sites will be open all day Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the following schools: Bel Air Elementary, Bell School, Edison Elementary, Lewis & Clark Elementary, Longfellow Elementary, McKinley Elementary, Perkett Elementary, Sunnyside Elementary, Washington Elementary, Erik Ramstad Middle and Jim Hill Middle.

 To be eligible to vote, you must live within the Minot Public School District #1, be at least 18 years old, have lived in Minot for at least 30 days, and have a current photo I.D.  

 "We want to make sure that every voter that goes out to the polls tomorrow has the knowledge to make an educated vote.  We encourage everyone to check our website.  We have a lot of information on our website about the bond election, what all of this will mean, where the money will be spent and also, a lot of frequently asked questions that we have developed answers for.  Anyone can log in and look at those and check it out," says Mark Vollmer, Minot Public Schools Superintendent.

 Once polls are closed at 7 pm, votes will be processed at the Ward County Auditor's Office.  Results will be released sometime Tuesday evening.
