Annandale School Referendum May 11; In-Person Balloting Opens May 4

On Tuesday, May 11 residents in School District 876 (Annandale) will have a single-question ballot to vote on – a proposed $81.55 million bond referendum to build a new high school facility to house grades 9-12, renovation of the existing high school to accommodate grades 5-8 as a middle school and adding space to serve early childhood and community education at the existing elementary school.

Absentee balloting for the bond referendum is open and will remain available until 4 p.m. Monday, May 10. In addition, starting Tuesday, May 4, voters in the school district can direct, in-person vote by inserting their ballots directly into ballot counter instead of sealing them in envelopes to be processed at a later date.

There are three ways to vote – voting early from home by downloading an application, voting in person at the District 876 office (125 Cherry Ave. N. in Annandale) or voting between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. on Election Day (Tuesday, May 11) at Annandale City Hall. Those who wish to vote but are not registered voters have the opportunity to pre-register prior to Election Day. However, Minnesota does allow for same-day voter registration.

The referendum question was initially scheduled for 2020, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the bond question was pushed back to May 11, 2021.

A website has been set up to provide information about the bond referendum (https://www.cardinalstrong.org/). The website includes information about the process, the need, the plan, the cost, voting information and frequently asked questions.

A link to view the referendum question can be found on a sample ballot here: https://static1.squarespace.com/static/5e455adb0b02737303b13ad9/t/6046884e45ac0c0e6d26134d/1615235150247/ISD_876_Sample_Ballot_May_2021.pdf
