Blue vote button On Tuesday, April 7, you will be able to elect candidates and weigh in on community initiatives.

There will be 51 different ballots in this election, so it will depend where you live as to what you are able to vote on. But all cities will have candidate elections, with Highlandville and Sparta also having issues on the ballot. School ballot issues will be voted on in Billings, Fordland, Bradleyville, and Ozark school districts. The Selmore Special Road District is requesting a levy increase and Ozark and Logan-Rogersville Fire Districts will have board member elections. The Chadwick Fire District is requesting a levy increase. Some districts will have no ballots, according to County Clerk, Kay Brown.

To see what you will be voting on, check your voter registration card for your precinct, then look at your sample ballot. The County Clerk’s Office will help with absentee ballots.

“Lower voter participation is a silent threat to our democracy…It under-represents young people, the poor, the disabled, those with little education, minorities and you and me.”  —Nancy Neuman

April elections are Tuesday, April 2

On March 9, 2013, in Announcement, by CCMODEMS

There are numerous local elections for school board members, school district directors, aldermen, council members, and fire board members. Ozark, Highlandville, and Sparta will be electing a mayor, and the Village of Saddlebrook, a trustee. Those in the Ozark Fire Protection District will also vote on a property tax levy increase:

“The Ozark Fire Protection District board of directors elected to place a 25-cent property tax levy increase on the April 2 ballot. If passed, the levy will go from 38 cents to 63 cents per $100 assessed property value. On a home assessed at $100,000, that would mean an increase of $47.50 per year or $3.96 per month.” (Christian County Headliner, February 8, 2013)

The City of Republic is proposing a sales tax increase of 1/8 of 1% for the city fire department, and Nixa will be voting on a municipal judge.
