Voters cast their ballots

Andrea Johnson/MDN Natosha Gartner and her husband Chad Gartner filled out their ballots in Tuesday’s school bond issue election at the Minot Municipal Auditorium.
Andrea Johnson/MDN Sarah Thorson fed her completed ballot into the voting machine. Voters were voting on a three-question ballot. Question one would approve $84.8 million in funding for two 9-12 high schools and converting Central Campus into a third in-town middle school. Question 2 would include an additional $24.2 million for a new swimming pool and new turf and an athletic complex at the new 9-12 high school on the former Cognizant property donated to the district for a new school. The third question on the ballot asked voters to approve raising the debt ceiling to allow the district’s debt to be at 10% of its assessed property value. Results of the election, which requires 60 percent or greater approval to pass, were not available in time for today’s edition.
