Lakewood school construction bond ahead by a whisker

The $66.8 million Lakewood school construction bond measure was barely clearing the 60-percent bar required for passage in second-day returns in Snohomish County.

On Tuesday, it had 59.15 percent approval; on Wednesday, it posted 60.08 percent.

Everett’s $259.4 million bond picked up a percentage point in next-day results, but was still short with about 58 percent of the vote.

In King County, Lake Washington’s $404 million request gained a little over a percentage point, but was still far short of the mark, wth only about 52 percent approval.

All three districts failed in February to pass bonds by the required 60 percent. Districts can ask voters only twice a year to pass bond measures, so this was the last chance for 2014.

The final tallies won’t be certified until May 6.
