Tallying for levies: special election set for Feb. 9

Special election ballots for two Sequim School District levy proposals — one looking to maintain programming, the other to fix a number of facility issues — are in the hands of voters, with a Feb. 9 due date.

Sequim School District proposes two levies: a four-year, $29.7 million Educational Programs and Operations (EP&O) levy that replaces Sequim’s current local tax and pays for core learning functions not supported in the state’s basic education formula, and a four-year, $15 million capital projects levy to address school building issues.

As of this week, Clallam County election officials report 29 percent, or 9,250 total ballots have been returned in Clallam County.

In other portions of the county, ballots include the Quillayute Valley School District proposition No. 1 replacement educational programs and operation levy, and the Hospital District 1 (Forks Community Hospital) emergency medical services levy.

Individuals can register to vote or update one’s registration in person at the Clallam County Auditor’s Office, 223 E. Fourth St. (Suite 1), Port Angeles, between 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
