Online infographic tracks school district’s mail-ballot election returns

By now, all registered voters living within the Lawrence school district should have received the materials necessary to participate in the district’s mail-ballot election concerning its local option budget.

Voters have until noon Jan. 27 to return their ballots to the Douglas County clerk’s office, 1100 Massachusetts St. In the meantime, Douglas County Clerk Jamie Shew has made it possible for members of the public to keep an eye on the turnout.

Shew created an infographic that tallies how many ballots have been received by his office. It charts the returns by day and compares the total amount with a 2008 election that also concerned the district’s local option budget.
