Preliminary numbers from the February special election show replacement levies passing in most school districts of Grays Harbor and Pacific counties. The McCleary School District is currently failing to get support for their M&O levy, and Aberdeen and Elma are waiting for updates to bond levies that are very close to passing for capital improvements.
The Aberdeen School District is passing a replacement Maintenance and Operations levy (now called Educational Programs and Operations Levies), and is very close to passing a school bond for a new Steven’s Elementary building with 58.42% Yes votes.
The Elma School District is passing a replacement Maintenance and Operations levy, and very close to passing a school bond for a new sports stadium, with 56.2% Yes votes.
Levies that replace expiring levies are passing in Aberdeen, Cosmopolis, Elma, Hoquiam, Montesano, North Beach, Oakville, Ocosta, Quinault, Satsop, Taholah, Wishkah and currently failing in McCleary with exactly 50% Yes votes.
Bond Levies for rennovations or new construction are passing in Oakville to rennovate the school, Wishkah to upgrade technology, and currently failing in Aberdeen to build a new Steven’s Elementary, and failing in Elma to build a new stadium.
With over 31% voter turnout, some ballots left to be counted, and some still in the mail, the results are updated when the county reports new tabulation results. Election results are certified by each county on February 21st.
