Early Voting Begins Monday for Canyon County School Levies

Posted By on Sun, Aug 4, 2013 at 10:00 AM

Early in-person voting begins Monday, Aug. 5 in Canyon County, where citizens will be weighing in on school levies for the Parma and Homedale school districts..

Registered voters will be able to cast early ballots at the Canyon County Elections Offices on E. Chicago Street in Caldwell from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays.

Districts have so far been unsuccessful in convincing voters that extra funds are necessary for their school operations.

In May, voters in Homedale rejected a supplemental levy—the second time in three years. This time, Homedale voters are being asked to approve a supplemental levy of $484,100 (each year) for two years to help with expenses.

Voters in Parma also rejected a supplemental levy last May. This time, voters are being asked to approve a 10-year, $250,000 (for each year) levy in order to purchase school buses, pay outstanding loans and build or remodel school buildings.

Citizens will also be voting on a trustee runoff in the Middleton School District.

Early voting will close Friday, Aug. 23 in anticipation of the election on Tuesday, Aug. 27.
