School Levies Decided Today


More than a few administrators at the offices of the Boise Independent School District are a bit nervous today. They're anxiously anticipating the results of today's supplemental levy election.

Polls are open until 8 p.m., and the Ada County Board of Elections said voting places are the same as any traditional election. Voters are also reminded that they can register at the polls with proof of residency. If you have voted in a general election within the last four years and have the same address, you don't have to re-register.

The Meridian School District, the largest in Idaho, is also holding a supplemental levy election today. Ada elections officials reported robust early voting for the Boise and Meridian levies (early voting ended last Friday). Election officials said nearly 5,000 ballots had already been cast.

In addition to the Boise and Meridian districts, levies are also being decided in dozens of Idaho communities, including Caldwell, Horseshoe Bend, Middleton, Nampa, Notus, Vallivue and Weiser.
