KENNEWICK, WA - Time is running out if you want your vote to count in the February special election.
School districts in Richland, Prosser, Kennewick, Grandview and Finley all have School Maintenance and Operations levies on the ballot.
The City of Walla Walla also has an EMS Levy on the ballot. Money from the EMS levy contributes to training both volunteer and paid EMS professionals, along with equipment related to EMS. By law, it cannot be used for other purposes. Voting "Yes" would keep the EMS tax where it is.
Ballots must be returned to your county auditor's office, dropped off in a drop box, or postmarked by 8 PM on election day, Tuesday, February 11th.
The Kennewick School District says as of Friday, just over a quarter of the ballots had been returned. In Finley, just under a quarter have been returned. 30% have been returned in Prosser, 27% in Grandview, and just over 26% in Richland.
