Initial results from special election in Clark County holding

By , Columbian staff writer

Thursday’s third batch of ballots in the Feb. 8 special election didn’t lead to any changes from Tuesday night’s initial results.

The city of Vancouver’s Proposition 2 — which provides annual funding for fire and emergency services — is still passing, with 53.36 percent voting to approve.

Though Evergreen Public Schools’ three-year replacement levy saw another slight uptick in “yes” votes, the measure is still failing, with 57.18 percent voting to reject.

The Ridgefield School District’s bond is also still failing, with 57.39 percent voting to approve the measure. The bond requires a 60 percent supermajority to pass.

Levy measures for the Green Mountain School District, the Hockinson School District and the Mount Pleasant School District are continuing to pass. The La Center School District’s levy is still failing.

Overall voter turnout also crept up another percentage point, now at 29.52 percent.

The next round of ballots will be expected around 3 p.m. on Feb. 15.
