Primary Election – Back of the Ballot

After my recent post about the “Primary Election – What’s New?” I was reminded by an astute Lopez reader that the long ballot has a very important second side. That long list of senate candidates not only required special paper, it also pushed local issues to the back of the ballot.

On the back of the ballot, Lopez voters will find a measure to pay for “educational programs and operational support.” This is the district’s last chance to renew its existing levy before the state assumes school levies next year. Make sure you don’t miss the second page!

Need more information about the measure? The online voters’ guide, available at, has information about all candidates and measures on the primary ballot. Or contact the Elections Office at 360-378-3357, or, for assistance.
