Casting your ballot early in the Gibraltar Area School District attendance area could end up allowing you to enjoy your vacation a little more.
The proposed $29.8 million referendum question on the April 4th ballot would pave the way for the district to demolish the 1930s and 1950s sections of the building. In its place, the district plans on building a new two-station gym, community space, and classrooms in addition to updates to the cafeteria and offices. Parents from the referendum-supporting parent group Because the Gibraltar Kids Matter have realized that Election Day is on April 4th, which could be when many of their local families could be away on spring break. With voter turnout usually low for spring elections and even lower for absentee voting, JR Jarosh from Because the Gibraltar Kids Matter says it is important for people to learn how they can get their voices heard before they leave the area for the week.
Early voting begins at municipal clerk offices beginning on March 21st and ending on March 31st if your clerk is not holding voting hours on Saturday or Sunday.
