Kennewick School Bond Voting Deadline Tuesday May 19th
KENNEWICK, Wash.-- The latest numbers from the Benton County Auditor's Office show about 39% of the ballots had come in as of Monday, May 18th.
That's just over 15,000 of 39,000 mailed out. The President of the Tri-City Association of Realtors says every vote counts whether or not it's a yes.
His organization is encouraging its members to vote yes. This is the second time Kennewick's $68 million bond is trying to pass.
It would go toward construction of a new elementary school and remodeling.
"Your vote does count, it's very critical that everybody votes, whether you're going to vote yes or no, you need to get out to vote that's our right as citizens," said Glen Clark, President of the Tri-City Association of Realtors.
Clark also says better schools add to the quality of life in the Tri-Cities. The deadline to vote is Tuesday May 19th.
All ballots must be postmarked by then or dropped off by 8:00 p.m., at any of the auditor's office locations in Kennewick, Richland, and Prosser.
