Ennis High School, 223 Charles Ave and Hours: 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Electors will consider the following issues at the election:

  • Mill levy proposition to finance the school’s  general fund.  Shall the district be authorized to impose an increase in local taxes to support the general fund in the amount of $79,968.84 which is approximately .82 mills for the purpose of providing funds to support the General Fund for the proper maintenance and operation of the K-12 Program of the District for the 2018-2019 school year beginning July 1, 2018.  Passage of this proposal will increase the taxes on a home with the market value of $100,000 by approximately $1.10 and on a home with the market value of $200,000 by approximately $2.21.  The durational limit of the levy is permanent once approved by the voters, assuming the district levies the amount each year thereafter.  However, lowering the over-BASE tax levies in any year will lower the amount of permissively over-BASE levies in subsequent years.
  • The Trustee election is cancelled as the received nominating petitions and write-in intent declarations were equal to the number of positions to be elected, there is no other reason for the Trustee Election.

A qualified registered elector who will be absent from the district during the time the election is being conducted may: a) vote in person in the election administrator’s office as soon as the ballots are available and until noon the day before the ballots are scheduled to be mailed; b) make a written request, signed by the applicant and addressed to the election administrator, that the ballot be mailed to an address other than the address that appears on the registration card.  The district clerk/election administrator's office is located at:

103 W. Wallace St., First Floor, Virginia City, MT  59755

If you miss this regular registration deadline (30 days prior to the election), you may still register for the election by showing up at the county election office up to and including on election day.  Between noon and the close of business on the day before election day, you may complete and submit a voter registration card, but you will need to return to the district voting location on election day to pick up and vote a ballot.  The county election office is located at:

103 W. Wallace St., First Floor, Virginia City, MT 59755
