Summer breezes may make you feel fine, but it’s also time to return primary election ballots.
Locally, that means that ballots must be filled out and put in the mail – or dropped off at a local library before 8 p.m. – by Aug. 6.
Ballots can also be dropped off at the Spokane County Elections Office, 1033 W. Gardner Ave.; the Spokane Transit Plaza, 701 W. Riverside Ave.; or CenterPlace, 2426 N. Discovery Place.
In addition a slate of local races, there are two Spokane County measures:
- Measure No. 1, Renewal of Spokane County Criminal Justice and Public Safety Sales Tax – This yes/no measure would continue a one-tenth of 1 percent countywide sales-and-use tax to be used by the county (and cities and towns) for criminal justice and public safety purposes.
- Proposition 1, Renewal of Spokane County Library District regular Maintenance and Operations Levy – The Spokane County Library District board of trustees to restore its regular tax rate to 50 cents per $1,000 of assessed value in 2019 for collection in 2020.
