From The Durango Herald (Dale Rodebaugh):
About 25 percent of an estimated 4,600 eligible voters had returned ballots as of 4 p.m. Monday in an election to fund the La Plata Archuleta Water District. “It’s a good showing,” said Amy Kraft with Harris Water Engineering, the designated election official. “Special-district elections can have turnouts of 10 percent.” All ballots must be received by 7 p.m. today at 954 East Second Ave., Suite 101, Kraft said. The results will be posted in the window as soon as the final ballot is counted, she said.
Voters are being asked to approve Issue A, which authorizes a levy on the market value of their property of 5 mills (half a penny) and lift the district’s revenue limit, now held in check by the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights, also known as TABOR.
