The $32 million Blaine School District bond appears to be dead after additional ballots were counted Wednesday, April 27.
Slightly more than 59 percent of the votes were in favor of the measure, falling just short of the required 60 percent approval needed for school bonds to pass. Only a handful of ballots are left to count. To view results on the Whatcom County Auditor’s Office, click here.
Superintendent Ron Spanjer said the measure will ultimately need to go back to voters, but it won’t be any time in the near future.
