Ballots for the Feb. 13 special election were mailed to Snohomish County voters on Thursday.
Those living within the Edmonds School District, including residents in the cities of Edmonds, Lynnwood and Mountlake Terrace, will be voting on a measure to renew its school programs and operations levy.
The levy would allow the district to collect $1.50 per $1,000 assessed value on residences within the district, which totals between an estimated $49 million and $78.5 million per year from 2019-2022. School district officials say the levy is not for additional funding, but to continue day-to-day operations. (Click here for more information about the levy.)
