Officials in Canyon County plan to recount the votes in last week's school bond election after Vallivue's $65.3 million bond passed by less than two votes.

The recount will take place Tuesday morning at the Canyon County Elections Office.

Unofficial results showed the bond passed with 66.71% of the vote. It needed 66.67% to pass. With 2,421 people voting, it means just one or two votes led to the bond's passage.

The money is pegged to be used to build a new middle school, remodel the existing middle school and buy land for future schools.

Unofficial Results: Passed

66.71% - In Favor
1,615 votes

33.29% - Against
806 votes
