The deadline is closing in quickly for voters in Clark County. Election Day is Tuesday, February 14, and only a few days remain to vote on Ridgefield School District’s bond measure, Proposition 2.

If approved, the Ridgefield School District bond measure will:

Reduce overcrowding so the school district can continue to keep class sizes small; modernize classrooms that reflect best practices in education; enhance security and improve safety upgrades on all campuses; and be fiscally responsible by using funds from state and city, thus reducing taxpayer cost.

More information on the Ridgefield School District’s 2017 bond program can be found by visiting http://www.ridgefieldsd.org/2017-bond-program--3

A 60 percent supermajority (2,247 YES votes) is required for Ridgefield’s school bond measure to pass. In addition, at least 3,744 votes must be cast either for or against the bond measure for the results of the election to be considered valid.

Ballots returned by mail need to be postmarked by February 14. Ballots can also be dropped off at the Clark County Elections Office by 8:00 pm on Election Day or at one of the ballot deposit locations listed on the Clark County Elections website at: https://www.clark.wa.gov/elections/ballot-deposit-locations.
