Buena Vista School District voters are deciding two school board races.
Salida School District voters are being asked to join the Colorado Mountain College taxing district. If approved, CMC would begin offering a variety of education programs and property taxes would increase $29 per $100,000 of assessed value for residential properties, $116 per $100,000 for commercial real estate.
There are two state questions on the ballot, both related to taxes: Propositions CC and DD.
Proposition CC asks whether the state can keep all the tax money it collects and DD would add a new tax on sports betting.
Chaffee County Clerk and Recorder Lori Mitchel has some do’s and don’ts to insure that your vote is counted.
So far, 35 percent of the ballots have been returned. 2,659 ballots out of 7,694 have been returned in the Salida School District, in the Buena Vista School District, 2,218 out of 6,397 have been returned.
Again, do not mail your ballot. Return it in person.
Heart of the Rockies Radio news will have the results of the election on air and on-line tomorrow night just after 7 pm.
