A few precincts’ tickets didn’t list library referendum; error caught early, fixed

Nineteen residents who wanted to vote early cast ballots that were missing a big question: whether to approve a $30 million library project.

The problem was discovered when a married couple voted early last week and went to the clerk’s office wondering why they paid taxes to the countywide library system but weren’t allowed to vote on the proposed downtown Franklin library, Johnson County Clerk Sue Anne Misiniec said.

The library district is asking voters for permission to spend $29.9 million and build a new library and parking structure and remodel parts of the White River branch and current Franklin branch.
