Greene County Elections Office Is Open Saturday For Absentee Voting

Voters who won’t be able to cast a ballot during the Special Election November 5, can do so tomorrow (11/2) at the Greene County Archives/Elections Center.

Absentee voting will be available from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the office, 1126 N. Boonville Ave.

The office will also be open for absentee voting Monday from 8 to 5.

The special election will include a tax levy increase for Walnut Grove Schools.  Voters will be asked to increase the levy by $1.07 per $100 assessed valuation through 2040 for several projects, including safety and security improvements and new elementary school classrooms.

Springfield voters will decide two ballot measures:  One is the continuation of a one-eighth of one percent transportation sales tax.  If approved, the tax will sunset in 20 years.

The other is the continued collection of the three quarter of one percent pension sales tax, which funds the Springfield police officers’ and firefighters’ pension system.
