Can I vote in Tuesday's election?
The only issue on a ballot anywhere in Erie, Huron, Ottawa or Sandusky counties is for Perkins School — called Perkins Local School district on a ballot. Only eligible voters living within the Perkins Schools' territory can vote in Tuesday's election.
The district is proposing a 10-year, 6.73 mill emergency levy to taxpayers. If approved, the levy would generate $2.88 million per year to fund day-to-day operations, including employee salaries and benefits.
If approved, the levy will cost the owners of a $100,000 home an additional $206 per year. That same homeowner currently pays $998 a year.
Here's a timeline of important election dates to be aware about:
• Friday: The final day people can vote early in person at the Erie County Board of Elections office, located at 2900 Columbus Ave. The office is open today and Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
