Early voting is now open
Early voting for the district’s levy referendum started Sept. 17 and runs through Monday, Nov. 1. You can vote early by mail or in-person. Polls will also be open on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 2. Learn more at mnvotes.org.
The district’s current operating levy will expire at the end of this school year. If a new levy is not approved, the district will lose between $11 to $12 million in annual funding and would face significant reductions in staff and programming.
The ballot will include 2 questions - one to replace the expiring levy and a second question to fund new technology for kids and classrooms. Learn more about the levy request.
