Election Day is Tuesday! Cast your ballot

Regardless of your stand on the Wa-Hi bond, it is important to have your voice heard. Vote!


The time to vote is here.

Ballots must be received at the Election Center or postmarked no later than Tuesday.

Voters will decide the fate of the $48 million bond to fund the $69.6 million Walla Walla High School renovation project. State matching funds are expected to cover the remaining $21.6 million project costs.

The plan gives the Wa-Hi campus the same open feel while upgraded most of the 50-year-old buildings to today’s standards.

But whether you agree or disagree with this proposal, you should vote. Voting is a privilege that shouldn’t be taken lightly.

It’s likely most voters who plan to vote have returned their ballots.

Still, there are some people who put their ballots on a table or desk and forgot Tuesday is the deadline to vote.

Others might still be undecided on this measure.

It is too late to take a tour of Wa-Hi, but a video tour given by Superintendent Mick Miller is online (wwps.org or bit.ly/ULs0bj). The video provides an overview and should help voters make a decision.

Ultimately, regardless of your view on the Wa-Hi bond, it is important to cast an informed ballot.

Ballots can be dropped off at the following locations — Election Center, 310 W. Poplar St., open until 8 p.m. on Election Day, or Auditor’s Office, 315 W. Main St., Room 201, open until 4 p.m. Tuesday.

Outside drop boxes are open until 8 p.m. on Tuesday.

In Walla Walla they are located at Fifth Avenue and Poplar Street, Courthouse alley (Enter on Fifth Avenue) and the Walla Walla Fire Station at 170 N. Wilbur Ave. A box is also at College Place City Hall.
