There are lots of questions about the recall effort. And while we’ll do our best to answer any questions KID patrons have about the recall of the board, here are the answers to the most frequently asked questions.
I own land and am a KID patron. Can I vote?
Yes – but only if you’re registered. Owning land serviced by the Klamath Irrigation District doesn’t automatically mean you get to exercise your voice. First, you must go to the Klamath Irrigation District’s main office and register to vote. You can find the KID main office at 6640 KID Lane, Klamath Falls, OR 97603. The office hours are from 8 am to 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday. They can be reached at 541.882.6661.
My spouse and I are mad as hell and we both want to sign the recall petition! Will both of our signature get counted?
While both you and your spouse can sign, only one signature will be counted.
Our farm is operated by a trust. How do we sign?
For situations such as LLCs, partnerships, trusts, trustees, corporations, guardianships and conservatorships, a registered voter can be designated to vote and sign petitions on behalf of the organization. That representative must be signed up as a voter at the KID main office before signing petitions. KID has forms for these specific scenarios.
I own a farm in Zone 5, but think what these people are doing is absolutely deplorable. Can I sign a petition?
While we understand your anger and dismay, unfortunately you have to own land in the Zone where one of the members is being recalled in order to sign the petition.
I’ve signed the petition, now what?
There will be a vote, which again is why it’s important to make sure you visit the Klamath Irrigation District office and make sure you’re signed up to vote. Only the votes of patrons represented by Brent Cheyne, Grant Knoll and Ken Smith will be able to vote on whether or not that board member needs to go or will remain on the board to finish out their term.
