Pocatello–The Bannock County Elections Office is holding a special election on March 14 for Pocatello/Chubbuck School District’s supplemental levy. Early voting begins this coming Monday, February 27, and continues through March 10. Voters may request absentee ballots until 5:00 p.m. on March 3.
The levy asks the question, “Shall the Board of Trustees of the Pocatello/Chubbuck School District No. 25, Bannock County, State of Idaho, be authorized and empowered to levy a two year Supplemental Levy, as permitted by law, in the amount of eight million two hundred and fifty thousand dollars ($8,250,000.00) per year for the purpose of paying lawful expenses of maintaining and operating the schools of the District as stated above for the fiscal years 2023-2024 and 2024-2025?”
The expected financial impact of the levy is $113.07 per $100,000 of assessed property value. This will replace the current two-year levy, which will expire at the end of June.
A sample ballot is available here.
