Auburn voters' absentee deadline approaching for school millage referendum

Auburn residents have just two weeks to apply for absentee ballots in the 2007 Special Municipal Tax Election.

The deadline for absentee ballot applications is Aug. 23 for the Aug. 28 election, where voters will decide whether Auburn City Schools will receive a 7-mill increase in school property taxes.

Applications must be made in writing to the Auburn city manager, hand delivered or mailed to 144 Tichenor Ave., Suite 1, Auburn, AL 36830. Completed ballots may be filed with the city manager up to and including Election Day.
