Voters are reminded that the deadline to file comments for or against the Ray Unified School Districts override election will be 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 6. The comments must not exceed 200 words, they will need to be hand delivered to the Pinal County School Superintendent at 75 N. Bailey St. in Florence or they can be mailed to PO Box 769, Florence, Arizona 85132. An informational pamphlet will be mailed to each home with a registered voter with the comments are submitted.

The override election was approved by the board in June. If the override is approved by the voters there will be no increase current taxes paid for the schools, the override will allow the existing secondary tax rate to remain in place, it does not allow for an increase. Should voters not approve the override election, the school district will be forced to cut $110,000 from the budget each year for the next several years. Ray USD voters have consistently supported the override elections since the 1980s.

Voters will head to the polls on this issue on Tuesday, Nov. 4, during the General Election. The deadline to register to vote in the November election is October 6, 2014. Voters can now register to vote online on the Service Arizona webpage: here.
