Next big vote is school issue

Pauls Valley, Oklahoma — A couple of big elections are now in the books setting things up for the next one with a school bond issue in Wynnewood.

This month it was sales tax elections for Pauls Valley and Garvin County with both passing.

Now those living in the Wynnewood School District have a couple of weeks to submit the application asking for an absentee ballot to be mailed to them for an April 1 election.

On the ballot is a $20.3 million school bond issue in Wynnewood.

The Wynnewood issue, if passed by at least 60 percent, will go to build a new elementary school.

The school’s top administrator, Superintendent Raymond Cole, says the bond issue provides a good plan to address many of the district’s current and future needs.

The proposal calls for the new grade school to be built on property on the north side of town a few yards southeast of Wynnewood’s football field.

In this scenario local middle school students would then be moved into the current grade school facility.

There has been some opposition expressed on the proposed location of a new grade school, along with an increase in property taxes some believe is too high.

The deadline has already passed for any Wynnewood residents to get registered to vote for the April election.

Anyone interested in having absentee ballots mailed to them have until 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 26 to apply.

Election officials stress any registered voter eligible to vote in this election may vote by absentee ballot without having to state a reason.

Application forms are available at the county Election Board in the county courthouse in Pauls Valley.

Forms are also available at www.ok.gove/elections online.

Early absentee voting in person style will be offered from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday, March 27-28 at the Election Board.
