County Clerk: Voter turnout low in Jackson County
MEDFORD, Ore. —
There are just a few hours left of voting for this special election.
The only ballot box that's open for drop in Jackson County is on 1101 West Main Street.
Residents of the Phoenix Talent School District were asked to vote on measure 15-171 a $68 million bond that would improve school facilities.
Of the nearly 17,000 ballots mailed out, about 4,000 were returned.
"About 29.78 percent at this point so just right on the verge of 30 percent so we'll definitely top 30 percent by 8 o'clock tonight so slow election. Not a huge amount of ballots out because of course it is key to the Phoenix, Talent School District," said Chris Walker, the Jackson County Clerk.
Results will be posted on the county website by Monday at 8:00 p.m.
