Bond issue put forward a third time A scaled-down bond issue will go to Wakonda School District voters for a third time on May 8.

The $1.8 million in bonds would be used for a new elementary school, high school remodeling and city-school library.

The bond issue represents a $350,000 cut from November 2000 and January 2001 bond elections which fell short of the required 60 percent majority by one and seven votes, respectively.

The polling place for all precincts of the district will be in the kindergarten room at the Wakonda School, 202 Nebraska St. Handicapped and elderly voters may contact the business manager for information and special assistance in absentee voting or polling place accessibility.

Voter registration for the school bond election will close April 23. Failure to register by this date will cause forfeiture of voting rights for this election. If you are in doubt about whether you are registered, call the county auditor at (605) 677-7120.

Registration may be completed during regular business hours at the county auditor's office, municipal finance office, and locations which provide driver's licenses, food stamps, AFDC, WIC, military recruitment, and assistance to the disabled as provided by the Department of Human Services.

Persons with disabilities and elderly voters may contact the county auditor for information and special assistance in voter registration, absentee voting, or polling place accessibility.
