Patrons of Harrah Schools will decide on nearly $37 million in issues to fund classroom additions to the elementary, junior high and high school, security upgrades at each school, a new football and soccer stadium and buses.

A $6 million bond issue at Putnam City Schools would fund technology upgrades, and officials at Western Heights Schools are looking for nearly $23 million to fund a new stadium, renovate the band room, upgrade security and buy new buses.

About three dozen other school bond issues will be on ballots statewide, nine different municipal and county questions will be decided, and a dozen municipal offices will be filled.

Residents in four school districts will also decide whether to annex or consolidate with neighboring districts.

Most school board seats up for election Tuesday are four-year terms. School bond issues require 60 percent voter approval to pass. Polls will be open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Bring a photo ID or a voter registration card to vote.
