Santa Fe is seeing a higher voter turnout for its mail-in election. As of Tuesday, more than 15,000 voters have submitted ballots for a property tax, according to The Santa Fe New Mexican.
A year ago, just 8,000 voters participated in a school district election. They are asking voters to decide on a five-year renewal of a property tax that brings in $11 million in funding for public and charter schools.
The deadline to turn ballots in is March 5.
