Votes are due no later than 8 p.m. and voters can submit their ballots to any designated drop site or local elections office. Two of the measures southern Oregon will vote on include school bonds for the Medford School District and Grants Pass School District. 

Jackson County voters will decide whether or not to give 25 million dollars to the Medford School District. It's a district bond to expand cte programs. If the school bond passes, homeowners would have to pay an extra 12 cents for every 1-thousand dollars of assessed property value. If a home is worth $265-thousand, then the homeowner would pay about 32-dollars extra per year.

In Josephine County, the district is asking voters to pass a $138-million dollar bond to fix both North and South Middle School.
If the bond passes, homeowners would have to pay $1.95 cents for every $1,000 they pay for their home.
