Two School Levies In Trouble
Two of three school operating levies in Lincoln and Stevens counties were failing in Tuesday night’s unofficial election results.
Only a one-year, $260,000 levy in the Harrington School District appeared to have passed. The levy had 65.7 percent support, 163-84, but up to 54 absentee or vote-by-mail ballots hadn’t been returned.
Elsewhere in Lincoln County, a two-year, $539,000-a-year Davenport School District levy was just short of the necessary 60 percent approval. The measure had 59.8 percent support, 383-257. It will be decided by up to 214 ballots absentee and vote-by-mail ballots.
In Stevens County, a two-year, $584,701-a-year Colville School District levy apparently failed with 57.2 percent support, 1,413-1,059.
Auditor Tim Gray said up to 368 absentee ballots remained uncounted. , DataTimes
