( I would have posted this last night, but the NOW blog platform was not working.)
Here are the results:
YES on Question 1:
2719 - 1219 (69.2%)
YES on Question 2:
2054 - 1883 (52.2%)
I'm surprised at the turnout, nearly 4000 votes. In April, only 3,069 folks voted for 4 different Trustee candidates, 5 different School Board Candidates, and a handful of judges.
Interesting that almost 1000 more people come out for a referendum, than to elect leaders.
I guess the "the referendum was scheduled for low voter turnout" argument didn't work out so well, since there was a heavy turnout.
