School Levy Votes: Four Passing, Two Failing
Four of the educational enrichment levies on the ballot in the Mid-Columbia were being approved by wide margins after a second round of vote counts were released on Wednesday, while two are being rejected. The White Salmon Valley School District’s four-year levy continues to pass with a 62.5 percent approval rate…1,315 to 788. The four-year levy for Goldendale schools was being approved by 57.6 percent of voters…1,319 to 1,025. Centerville School District’s four-year levy is passing 148-74, and Wishram’s four-year levy was also being approved 60-27. The Stevenson-Carson School District’s three-year levy was being rejected by 52.1 percent of voters…912 no to 837 yes. Glenwood’s two-year levy is now failing 91-88 after the count was even in Tuesday night’s results. Klickitat and Skamania county election officials will release further vote counts again on Thursday. The levies provide funding for school district programs that are not funded under “basic education” by the state of Washington.
