BALLOT PROPOSISITONS
CARBON COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT NO.1 NOTICE OF ELECTION TO CONTINUE ADDITIONAL SPECIAL SCHOOL DISTRICT LEVY PROPOSITION AUTHORIZED BY WYOMING STATUTE § 21-20-110
Shall the additional special school district levy in the amount of one-half (1/2) mill upon each dollar of assessed valuation within Carbon County School District One (not to exceed two (2) mills) be continued for the maintenance of post secondary education services offered by the Carbon County Board of Cooperative Higher Educational Service?”
CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT A
Currently, the Wyoming Constitution allows the legislature to authorize the investment of public employee retirement systems funds and permanent state funds in equities, such as stock or shares in private or public companies. Permanent funds of the state include funds designated as permanent funds by the Constitution. The Wyoming Constitution does not allow the state to invest any other funds in equities.
The adoption of this amendment would allow the legislature, by two-thirds vote of the members of both houses, to authorize the investment of additional specified state funds in equities.
VOTING ASSISTANCE
Any elector who requires assistance to vote because of blindness, disability or inability to read or write, may be given assistance by a person of the elector’s choice, other than the elector’s employer or an agent of that employer or an officer or agent of the elector’s union (W.S. 22-13-113 (a)).
There will be an accessible touch screen voting machine available at every polling place. If you have any questions regarding the accessibility of your polling place, please contact the County Clerk’s Election office at (307) 328-2650 or call toll free 1-800-250-9812.
