CALDWELL, Idaho — The Vallivue School District bond has passed after a recount of the votes Tuesday.
The votes on election day were so close--there was only a single digit margin between pass and fail--that Canyon County officials decided a recount was necessary.
Results on election day 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.
Official Results: Passed
66.71% - In Favor
33.29% - Against
