KENNEWICK, WA- Nearly 250 supporters of the Kennewick School District's $90 million bond to build new schools reminded Kennewick residents to return their ballots after they vote.

Teachers, staff, community members, and even some high school kids helped pass out the nearly 11,000 door hangers on Kennewick homes, as reminders to return their ballots.

If passed, the bond would build three new schools for the district and replace two older schools.

High school student Isabelle Matson decided to spend her Saturday going door to door.

"My mom is going to be a teacher, so she needs teaching jobs.  I think that the school district needs more schools for children," said Matson.

At least 60% of the votes have to be “yes” in order for the bond to pass.

The ballots were mailed out earlier this week and should be returned by February 10th.
