Notice of Special Referendum and Sample Ballots

November 7, 2017





Notice is hereby given of a special referendum to be held in the Cochrane-Fountain City School District on November 7, 2017.  The question to be submitted to a vote, for a referendum, is shown in the sample ballot below.




Upon entering the polling place, a voter shall state his or her name and address, show an acceptable form of photo identification and sign the poll book before being permitted to vote.  If a voter is not registered to vote, a voter may register to vote at the polling place serving his or her residence if the voter provides proof of residence.  Where ballots are distributed to voters, the initials of two inspectors must appear on the ballot.  Upon being permitted to vote, the voter shall retire alone to a voting booth or machine and cast his or her ballot except that a voter who is a parent or guardian may be accompanied by the voter's minor child or minor ward.  An election official may inform the voter of the proper manner for casting a vote, but the official may not in any manner advise or indicate a particular voting choice.


Where Paper Ballots are Used  The voter shall make a mark cross (X) in the square next to "yes" if in favor of the question, or the voter shall make a cross (X) in the square next to "no" if opposed to the question.  


Where Touch Screen Voting is Used   The voter shall touch the screen at "yes" if in favor of the question or the voter shall touch the screen next to "no" if opposed to the question. 


The vote should not be cast in any other manner.  Not more than five minutes' time shall be allowed inside a voting booth.  Sample ballots or other materials to assist the voter in marking his or her ballot may be taken into the booth and copied.  The sample ballot shall not be shown to anyone so as to reveal how the ballot is marked.  If a voter spoils a paper ballot, he or she shall return it to an election official who shall issue another ballot in its place, but not more than three ballots shall be issued to any one voter.  If the ballot has not been initialed by two inspectors or is defective in any other way, the voter shall return it to the election official who shall issue a proper ballot in its place.  The voter may spoil a touch screen ballot at the voting station before the ballot is cast. 


After Voting the Ballot  After an official paper ballot is marked, it shall be folded so that the inside marks do not show, but so the printed endorsements and inspectors' initials on the outside do show.  The voter shall then deposit his or her folded ballot in the proper ballot box or deliver the ballot to an inspector for deposit, and leave the polling place promptly  


After an official touch screen ballot is cast, the voter shall leave the polling place promptly.


A voter may select an individual to assist in casting his or her vote if the voter declares to the presiding official that he or she is unable to read, has difficulty reading, writing, or understanding English, or that due to disability is unable to cast his or her ballot.  The selected individual rendering assistance may not be the voter's employer or an agent of that employer or an officer or agent of a labor organization which represents the voter.


The following is a sample of the official ballot: 



Sue Pronschinske, Cochrane-Fountain City School District Clerk
