DONNELLSON, Ia. – Voters turned out to Central Lee High School to decide whether or not to pass a multi-million dollar school bond Tuesday.
The $12.9 million dollar bond would fund significant infrastructure upgrades in schools throughout the district.
Election officials stationed at the polling place said turnout was slow early in the day but expected it to heat up as people got off work and get out of school.
This is the second try to get a school bond passed at Central Lee.
A similar bond failed last April, even though it carried almost 57 percent of the vote.
“Well it’s not a simple majority,” special election chairperson Barb Gray said. “I believe 60 percent for it to pass so whatever happens happens.”
The polls will stay open until 8:00 p.m..
Unregistered voters can register and vote at the polling station. They’ll need to bring proof of identity and residency.
Registered voters only need a photo ID.
Officials said they’ll have the unofficial results immediately after the polls close.
