Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - Following last week's vote by the Duluth School Board to put two levy questions on the fall ballot, levy campaigners are pushing the yes vote.

The Duluth School Board will have two levy questions on the November ballot, one asking voters to renew a current levy and the other asking for more funding from Duluth homeowners.

Despite a large population without students in Duluth schools and on a fixed income, organizers with the 'Stand Up For Kids' campaign say they're targeting all demographics in the district to get people on board.

"Obviously there are a lot of Duluthian's that don't have students in classrooms in the Duluth public schools, but there's still a lot of value in increasing property values from young families wanting to move into the Duluth Public Schools," said Tom Albright, Stand Up for Kids Campaign.

Duluth residents will have a chance vote on the two levy referendums questions on November 5th.
