By Karen M. Jorgensen
In preparation for the opening of the absentee ballot period, the Triton School Board Monday night approved resolutions establishing an Absentee Ballot Board and also appointing election judges for the Nov. 7 vote.
Appointed to the Absentee Ballot Board were Deb Groll, Deb Meeker, Tammy Fate, Patty Braeger and Billie Cowell.
Appointed as election judges were two head judges, Lee Mattson and Julie Beth and four additional election judges, Jeremy Wahlstrom, Sonja Hruska, Todd Marquardt and Eleanor Engesser.
The polls will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 7, at Triton High School, 813 West Highway St., Dodge Center.
Residents desiring to vote absentee can request to have a ballot mailed to them. They can then mark their ballot, have it witnessed and return it by mail. Absentee voting will be available to residents beginning Friday, Sept. 22.
Board members also approved a resolution setting the amount the district can levy at $2,086,002.55. This amount, Supt. Brett Joyce told the board, is the maximum allowed under state law. This is not, he said, the amount the district expects to levy. Districts routinely set the limit at the maximum allowed to allow them more flexibility in making their final levy decision, he said.
The Triton FFA Chapter was given permission by the board to attend the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis Oct. 24 - 28.
