Natrona County is ready for voters to cast their ballots about the school district’s $33 million bond issue on Tuesday, an election official says.

“May 6th, all polling places will be open from seven in the morning to seven at night,” Elections Deputy Clerk Chris Lindsey said Thursday.

On Wednesday and Thursday, crews hauled the voting machines from storage at the Road and Bridge Department in Mills to polling places ranging from Casper to Midwest to Powder River to Red Creek School on Highway 487.

“There are 46 polling places and 100 machines are being delivered to all of them,” Lindsey said.

“Those are the ones you do put your ballot into and are tabulated,” she said. “And each polling place will also have an Automark, which is for those people who are disabled.”

County officials recently tested and approved the machines, Lindsey added.

The bond issue is the only measure on the ballot, she said.

According to the political action committee, the bond will pay for building improvements that the state will not fund including security equipment, technology, improvements to swimming pools at Kelly Walsh and Midwest schools, and replacement of the pool at Natrona County High School.

The bond will cost $1.81 a month for every $100,000 of a home’s market value, according to the website.
