Breaking Down The Ballot

Posted: Updated:
KALISPELL -

Some of the wording on the November 5 ballot could throw some Kalispell voters for a loop.

Referendum number 103, regarding resolution number 5572, is the item asking about expanding the Kalispell Municipal Airport.

The resolution passed by city council okayed an upgrade of the airport, until a petition gathered enough signatures to put the issue on the ballot.

A vote for the repeal of the resolution is a vote against expanding the airport, thus overturning city council's decision. Conversely, a vote against repealing the resolution is a vote in favor of expansion.

"This gives definitive direction, I think, from the community about where they want to go. You know, if there's other options related to it, I'm not aware of any of those at this moment," said Doug Russell, Kalispell's city manager.

Ballots can be dropped off between 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. on election day at the Flathead County Election Department on Main Street.
