Ballots Out for Special Election

Ballots MEDFORD, Ore. — Election officers across Southern Oregon are preparing for the November special election.

The Josephine County Clerk’s Office prepared its equipment on Tuesday, checking its ballot tabulation machine. Over at the Jackson County Office, staff are waiting to get returned ballots soon.

This year, voters will choose whether to continue a 5-year local tax for the Fire District in the Applegate area.

“Make sure to get your ballot in! There is no such thing as an insignificant election. These are all very important to the community, especially to the people that reside within that Applegate Rural Fire District,” explained Jackson County Clerk Chris Walker.

Jackson and Josephine counties both post their voter pamphlets online:
