Community College Election is Tuesday

A yes vote could create a new community college in the Treasure Valley


It's a normal election, folks, on an odd date.

Ada County says you'll be using the same polling places you're used to, and the hours are the usual: 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

So which way are you going to vote?

The folks who want you to vote yes were out in force this weekend. Anyone else get a pro-community college flyer in their mailbox, or stuffed in their door?

Idaho Public Television did a great job with their Dialogue program this weekend, talking with proponents about the idea of raising property taxes to finance a new state-run community college.

We've had some questions about it ourselves, and the election could do more than just decide a new school's fate; it could shift the political landscape a bit.
