Mary Richards, KSL NewsradioThe threat of a lawsuit still hangs over the Jordan School District split, but it will have to be resolved quickly because the election is fast approaching.

The Salt Lake County Clerk's Office has limited time to get everything ready to go for election day.

County Clerk Sherrie Swensen says if west-side cities sue over the Jordan split going on the ballot, it could get messy. "Once we locked that language down on our data base, we cannot change it. So everything is on hold, not only the electronic machines, but the paper ballots that have to be printed," said Swensen.

She says they just barely got the ballot language on the east-side split, and they're waiting for ballot language on West Jordan's question district split.

Herriman, South Jordan and Riverton haven't said yet if they will sue over the right to vote on the split.
