The second batch of ballots in the Feb. 8 special election are showing no change in the outcomes for each of the measures reported Tuesday night.

As of Wednesday, 57.35 percent of voters were rejecting Evergreen’s levy, which would replace the district’s current maintenance and operations levy when it expires in December.

Ridgefield’s bond saw a slight increase in support, with 57.37 percent of voters now approving the measure. In order to pass, however, the bond requires a 60 percent supermajority — a mark that’s unlikely to be met in the coming days.

The city of Vancouver’s Proposition 2, which would allocate an estimated $15 million annually in property taxes to the Vancouver Fire Department’s fire and emergency services, is continuing to pass, with 53.24 percent voting to approve the measure.

Voters in the Hockinson School District are still passing a four-year replacement levy, now with 53.17 percent in favor.

Voters in the Green Mountain School District are still passing their local schools levy, now with 58.62 percent voting to approve.

The maintenance and operations levy for the Mount Pleasant School District is also passing, with 68.06 percent voting yes. The vast majority of voters in Mount Pleasant live in Skamania County.

The replacement levy for the La Center School District is still failing, with 52.77 percent of voters saying no.

Overall voter turnout has increased to 28.31 percent, with an estimated 3,500 ballots left to count. The next set of results is due by 3 p.m. Thursday.
