Voters can start casting ballots at early voting locations on Tuesday.

Early voting will run from Tuesday to noon Monday, Nov. 2.

Locations will have sanitary precautions in place, including hand sanitizer for people to use.

“We do want people to wear a mask when they come in,” Dubois County Clerk Amy Kippenbrock said. “If they don’t have one, we have them to provide.”

There are various locations through the county that a voter can go to cast her or his ballot. A voter can access the site of his or her choice. That is different from General Election Day, which is Tuesday, Nov. 3. On that day, a voter must go to her or his specified polling place.

“For the eight (8) calendar years immediately following the holding of the referendum, shall the Southeast Dubois County School Corporation impose a property tax rate that does not exceed nineteen cents ($0.19) on each one hundred dollars ($100) of assessed valuation and that is in addition to all other property taxes imposed by the school corporation for the purpose of funding academic and educationally-related programs, maintaining class sizes, recruitment/retention of teachers and support staff, and school safety/mental health resources.”

If approved, the referendum is expected to provide the district an additional $745,000 for eight years, with funds first becoming available in May 2022, district officials have said.
