The special election on March 12th will only affect residents in the Sisters School District.

 

Deschutes County Clerk Nancy Blankenship says these special elections only happen on odd numbered years.  "Special elections are really based on what a district wants to do; so it's district driven. Unless the Sisters School District had not have a levy, we wouldn't have an election in March. Same would be true with the upcoming September or November election. In odd years, we have elections only in May for sure; and depending on what districts wants to do; when have one in March, September or November."

 

She says on even numbered years there is only an election in May and November.

 

The May 12th election will ask Sisters School District voters for a five year extension of the current levy of .75 cents per $1,000 assessed value that expires in June.

 

The deadline to register for the March 12th election is Tuesday, February 19th. Ballots go out Friday.
