Jerome, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Magic Valley residents are at the polls voting for local school district levies.
District officials around Southern Idaho are hoping the levies will pass.
School district levy elections are in the hands of voters.
"We need feedback from the community as far as how they want our schools to operate and the way they can do that is to come out and vote” said Superintendent Dale Layne, Jerome School District.
Six Southern Idaho school districts are asking for the levies.
If voters decide not to move forward with allowing schools to receive funds, district officials say they would have to make more budget cuts.
"Essentially we would be looking at larger class sizes and reductions with staff. At this point there aren't any more places to go” said Layne.
County officials explain that voter turnout for a special election is always low.
"I think it's very important to vote practically for school elections because the children are the future of the Country and the State. If we don't educate them well we've done it to ourselves,” said Carol Thompson, voter.
"If they don't go out and vote then they have no rights to say anything about how the election turns out” said Colleen Bench, voter.
"All the elections matter and they need to support the bonds or not, whichever way they decide to vote and however they decide to vote, they need to come out and vote” said Richard Haberman, voter.
A choice Idahoans will make for the future of education in the gem state.
