Little Change In School Vote Counts
No change in outcomes for educational enrichment levies on the ballot in the Mid-Columbia after updated vote counts were released on Thursday, even though the margin in the close numbers in Glenwood was down to a single vote. Glenwood’s two-year levy is now failing 92-91 after it was trailing by three in Wednesday’s results. The White Salmon Valley School District’s four-year levy continues to pass…1,444 to 841. The four-year levy for Goldendale schools was being approved…1,406 to 1,029. Centerville School District’s four-year levy is passing 149-74, and Wishram’s four-year levy was also being approved 60-27. The Stevenson-Carson School District’s three-year levy was still being rejected…1,001 no to 952 yes. Under Washington law, mail-in ballots only had to be postmarked by Tuesday night, so ballots that continue to arrive are counted. The levies provide funding for school district programs that are not funded under “basic education” by the state of Washington.
