School Elections: Have You Voted Today?

I voted on my way to work this morning -- yes on both Coeur d'Alene School District levy questions. No trouble getting in and out of the Borah School polls. No line. But people were arriving regularly. I'm going to move this thread up throughout the day. Let me know if you see anything of note at the polls.

3:37 p.m., Dan of the County update: "Our office handles voter registration for all voters in the county. We did get a request to supply more voter registration cards for the school district as they were running low. That may be one indication of a good turnout as they would be being used for Election Day registration."

3:18 p.m., "Our county elections office has had a very high number of phone calls and even people coming in to see where to vote or ask other questions. However, school elections are run totally by the school districts so you need to contact them directly as the county does not have any authority or responsibility over them" -- Dan of the County.

12:31 p.m., "I would like to give Kudos to the School District's strategery in planning Kindergarten registration to coincide with the levy vote," sez MamaJD. "According to those I spoke with, the registration date is always in May but was specifically set on May 15 election date. At Bryan Elementary, all the parents in line made sure to go vote."

10:06 a.m., My brother Ray called to say that the turnout at Dalton Garden Elementary is pretty good. He was the 11th one in line, not including those voting, and more were coming in. He also said that trustee candidate Brad St. John was ordered by the school district to remove his signs from the entrance to the school.

10:01 a.m., Thom George reported that he voted at Canfield Middle School after taking his children to their respective schools. Thom: "There was one other person voting at that time, but I was dismayed by the number of parents dropping off their children at school and driving away without bothering to go in and vote."
