Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Voters can head to any of 13 voting centers across the city to cast their ballot.

The measure needs 60 percent approval in Tuesday's election to pass. The money would be used to build a new elementary school, middle school and high school by 2024. It also would fund renovations at 14 other campuses.

The Sioux Falls School District is feeling some big growing pains.

As more people move into town, more students are filling Sioux Falls public schools. It's not a bad problem to have until there's no more room.

A special election, Tuesday September 18th, could change that as a $190 million bond, over the next 25 years, could pave the way for three new schools and some much-needed improvements to some of the district's oldest buildings.

The future is in the hands of the taxpayer.

All this week, KSFY breaks down this bond issue, what it means, why your vote counts, its impact on the district and it's impact on you.
