School districts across Arizona will be watching the November 5 special election closely, as bond and override money is on the line.

Fifty districts across the state have initiatives going to voters and 26 of those are in Maricopa County. Nearly 80 percent of Maricopa county residents will vote on $1.6 billion worth of bonds and overrides, which is double the typical amount.

Bonds fund tangible needs like new schools, classroom upgrades, technology and buses. Override money goes toward people and programs, including teacher salaries, school counselors, safety upgrades, workforce prep and all-day kindergarten.

The deadline to mail your ballot in has already passed, but you can drop it off Tuesday at select ballot locations.
