School District Worried About Clerical Error on Ballot Issue
The Butte School District is worried after a clerical error caused a tax measure to be left out of election notifications posted for voters.
State law requires the district to post notices and take out advertisements notifying the public about ballot measures more than 10 days prior to the election.
District officials say they forgot to include an $88,000 elementary levy from an advertisement placed in The Montana Standard.
According to the Montana Standard , district officials say voters will realize they are voting on several public school issues, including money for elementary schools, and it shouldn't be a problem.
