Superintendent to speak Thursday about Feb. 9 school election

Edmonds School Superintendent Nick Brossoit will speak and answer questions Thursday about the Feb. 9 school district ballot measure.

Brossoit’s presentation about the replacement technology and capital improvements levy is scheduled for 6 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 28, at the Edmonds Senior Center, 220 Railroad Ave., on the Edmonds waterfront.

The 32nd Legislative District Democrats are sponsoring the meeting.

The levy is on the Feb. 9, 2016 ballot throughout the school district, which includes Edmonds, Lynnwood, Mountlake Terrace, Woodway, unincorporated areas near those communities and part of Brier.

Snohomish County elections officials sent ballots Thursday, Jan. 21, to all registered voters in Edmonds School District 15 and six other school districts around the county.

The only item on south Snohomish County ballots, Edmonds School District Proposition 1, would continue the existing technology-and-capital-improvements levy for four years. It would pay for instructional technology and building system improvements.

The proposition would authorize the district to collect between 56 cents and 59 cents per $1,000 of assessed valuation on all property in the district.

The measure can pass with a simple majority. It doesn’t require a minimum number of votes for validation.

Ballot drop boxes near the Edmonds Library, in front of the Lynnwood City Hall and at 10 other sites around the county have been open since Jan. 8, when officials mailed ballots to military and overseas voters.

New Washington voters may register to vote in the election through Monday, Feb. 1, but they must register in person at the county auditor’s office in Everett.

The last day to update an existing registration or to register online or by mail was Jan. 11.

Registered Edmonds School District voters who don’t get ballots by Wednesday, Jan. 27, should call the Snohomish County Elections office at 425-388-3444.

Voters may return completed ballots through a ballot drop box or through the mail. Mailed ballots must be postmarked by Election Day, Feb. 9. Voters also may return completed ballots postage free to a 24-hour ballot drop box locations at any time until 8 p.m. Election Day.
