C-D voters to decide 2 bond issues

ENID, Okla. — Covington-Douglas Public Schools patrons will go to the polls Tuesday to decide two bond issues, one for transportation and one for building repairs.

If those issues are approved ,they will succeed an expiring bond issue and increase property taxes by $5.22 for each $100 in property taxes residents pay.

The transportation issue is for $180,000 to purchase two new 64-passenger route buses. Those buses will replace 1997 and 1998 buses.

The building bond issue totals $730,000 and will be used to replace exterior windows and doors as well as remodel and rebuild restrooms in the district.

Roy Schneider, Garfield County Election Board secretary, said special assistance will be offered to four groups of voters: physically disabled voters who cannot enter the polling place, physically disabled voters who need help marking their ballots inside the polling place, blind or visually impaired voters and illiterate voters. All may be assisted by a person the voter chooses.

Voters who have moved since the last election, but not transferred their registration may do so on election day. Those voters will go to their previous polling place, and while voting may fill out  a form instructing the county election board to transfer their registration to the new address before the next election, Schneider said.

Sample ballots are available at the election board. 903 Failing, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays.

The deadline to apply for absentee ballots is past, but people who want to cast absentee ballots may vote at the election board Friday or Monday. A two-member bipartisan absentee voting board will be on duty 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day to assist voters.

For information, call Garfield County Election Board at 237-6016.
