Conducting the Election

The county may carry out and pay for the election procedures unless the district steering committee asked for a mail in election. If so the district steering committee will most likely be paying for the costs of the election. According to MCA 22-1-702, the election must be conducted in accordance with Title 13 of the Montana Code Annotated. Only qualified electors residing within the proposed public library district may vote. According to MCA 22-1-703, the ballot must contain the following wording:

_____ FOR the creation of a public library district that may levy not more than ____ mills of property tax for the operation of the district.

_____ AGAINST the creation of a public library district

Stay in touch with the county clerk through the election process and monitor the various election procedures that need to be completed. [See Sample Ballot for Election for sample ballot language.]
