Tuesday is election day for much of the county

Voters in nine Spokane area school districts and the city of Spokane have tax measures they are being asked to cast ballots on by Tuesday evening.

Most Spokane city voters have four measures on their ballot. The Spokane School District, which covers much of the city and spills outside its borders in some areas, is asking voters to renew a maintenance and operations levy and approve a $288 million bond issue to pay for the next phase of a school renovation program. The city has an $18.5 million bond issue to handle several criminal justice projects, including a new evidence warehouse, animal control facilities and municipal courts.

The Cheney, Deer Park, Liberty, Mead, Medical Lake, Nine Mile Falls and Riverside school districts also have levy renewals. Reardan-Edwall has a capital projects levy, and the town of Rosalia has a park and recreation levy.

Ballots that are mailed must be postmarked by Tuesday. They can also be deposited, minus a stamp, in a drop box set up by the County Elections office at most public libraries.
