The last few trays of school election ballots were taken to the Hamilton post office Tuesday afternoon.

Ravalli County Clerk and Recorder and Election Administrator Regina Plettenberg said that all valley schools except Stevensville and Lone Rock are having elections this spring, and the county will handle compiling the ballots in all but two school districts.

She said that Darby and Victor will handle their own elections, but the Victor Park District will also have a ballot for trustees.

Plettenberg said that besides the trustee elections to school boards, the Corvallis and Florence-Carlton school districts have important levy elections.

Florence area voters also have a fire district levy request.

Ballots must be returned to the County Administration Center by 8pm May 8th, the actual day the state has set for school elections this year. In Darby and Victor, the ballots should be cast at the schools.

The mail-in process has been come more popular over the years, as have absentee ballots, she said. In fact, moving on to another election, the Primary election in June, those who have already requested absentee ballots for the June primary election can start expecting them in the mail May 7th. The Clerk expects the absentee numbers to comprise over 40 percent of the vote this year.
