If you live in Winnebago County, your ballot on Election Day will include two non-binding referendums:
1. Should the Wisconsin State Legislature create a non-partisan procedure for the preparation of a legislative and congressional redistricting plan?
2. Should the state legislature enact proposed legislation that closes the Dark Store loopholes, which currently allow commercial retail properties to significantly reduce the assessed valuation and property tax of such properties by using closed, vacant (dark) properties for determining the assessed value of open, occupied, and fully operational properties, resulting in a substantial shift in taxes levied against other tax-paying entities, such as residential home owners and/or cuts in essential services provided by an affected municipality?
League of Women Voters member Susan Curran has been studying redistricting in Wisconsin for the past few years. She will explain that referendum.
Oshkosh City Manager Mark Rohloff will explain the referendum on dark store legislation.
Sponsored by the library and the League of Women Voters of Winnebago County. This event will take place in the library's lower level Company E room.
Election Day is Tuesday, November 6, 2018 more information on voting
