All School Referendum Special Election Questions Tuesday Failed

Four Wright County school district held special election referendums Tuesday, Nov. 2 and all ballot questions failed to pass. Here is a review of the four referendums. The count remains unofficial until verified.

Annandale (Independent School District 836)

There were two ballot questions. The first was to authorize issuing general obligation bonds not to exceed $76.765 million for the construction of a new high school. The vote was 1,315 Yes, 1,720 No. The second ballot question was to authorize bonds not to exceed $9.7 million for the construction of an auditorium. That question required Ballot Question 1 to pass, so it was rendered moot. The vote on that Question 2 was 1,240 Yes, 1,784 No.

Delano (ISD 879)

There was one ballot question. It asked to raise the existing referendum revenue of $374.89 per pupil to $970 per pupil for a 10-year period beginning with taxes payable in 2022. The vote was 1,085 Yes, 1,906 No.

Monticello (ISD 882)

There were three ballot questions. The first question was to raise the general education revenue by $475 per pupil for five years beginning with taxes payable in 2022. The vote was 1,056 Yes, 1,842 No. The second question required the first question to pass and called for an additional $275 per pupil of general education revenue for a period of five years beginning with taxes payable in 2022. The vote was 980 Yes, 1,914 No. The third ballot question was to approve a capital project levy that would raise approximately $20 million over the next 10 years based on net tax capacity. The vote was 956 Yes, 1,944 No.
