Election 2020

Lewis County Auditor Larry Grove checks a ballot box Tuesday night. 

A request from Lewis County Fire District 18 for an EMS levy is passing as of the first vote count with 69 percent of the vote. 

Of a total of 186 votes cast, 129 voted in favor of the levy. The levy is a replacement for an expiring levy and authorizes the district to collect 29 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value for emergency medical services. 

The levy will be valid for six years, starting in 2021.
