Turnout is expected to be light today, but voters in the Fort Mill School District area heading to the polls, casting ballots on a $54 million dollar school board referendum to fund capital projects and building improvements.
Referendum committee co-chair Lisa McCarley tells WRHI the spending plan is not a permanent fix towards handling growth in the Fort Mill School District, but is enough to handle the district’s immediate needs.
The referendum calls for expansions at both Nation Ford and Fort Mill High Schools, a new elementary school, replacing existing athletic fields with artificial turf and funding technology and security improvements.
If approved, property owners in the district can expect to pay an additional $66 dollars per year on a $100,000 house.
Starting with today’s election, voters will be required to present a government-issued Photo ID to cast your ballot in today’s referendum. Acceptable forms of identification include a state-issued Driver’s License or DMV ID Card, a state-issued voter registration card with a photograph, a Federal Military ID or a U.S. Passport.
Polls will be open through 7 p.m.
