Ballots Arriving For February 11 Special Election
63, 207. That's how many ballots were sent to registered voters in Yakima County this week for the February 11 special election.
Auditor Charles Ross says the ballot includes operation levies for school districts in Sunnyside, Zillah, Yakima, Wahluke and Mabton. The ballot also includes a special levy for the Naches Parks Department and voters in Yakima will be asked to help the city raise more tax money by increasing the City's regular property tax levy to the maximum rate of $3.10/$1,000 of assessed valuation for collection in 2021.
Voters won't have a lot of time between the February 11 special election and the Presidential Primary next month.
The Primary is set for March 10 in Washington State. Thirteen Democratic candidates will be on the ballot. President Donald Trump will be the only choice on the ballot for Republicans. The Democrats will be competing for Washington's 107 delegates who will attend the 2020 Democratic National Convention this summer in Milwaukee.
