SEQUIM: More than half of school levy ballots already in

Clallam County elections officials had received 8,822 mail-in ballots by Monday from Sequim School District voters casting ballots in the three-year, $8.2 million maintenance and operations levy election.

That represents more than 51 percent of the total 17,230 ballots mailed to district voters, elections officials said.

And it is more than the 5,849 ballots required to have the levy election validated.

But Superintendent Mike Joyner said Monday night that it is too early to gauge the success of the levy effort.

During the Sequim School Board meeting, Joyner said the district “may be slightly ahead of the pace”‘ of a previous levy measure that failed.
