Lake Washington bond issue still falling short; others unchanged

The Lake Washington School District picked up some votes for its $755 million bond issue on the second day of counting ballots in the Feb. 11 special election.

The percentage of yes votes crept up from just under 57 percent to just over 57 percent, but it was still short of the 60 percent it needs to pass.

No votes on school issues changed enough in King or Snohomish counties to flip results from the first-day count, which showed most measures passing, though some by narrow margins.

The final votes won’t be tallied until Feb. 25.

Bond issues for school construction in the Northshore, Edmonds and Mukilteo school districts continue to be narrowly passing.

The Everett School District picked up some extra votes for its bond issue on the second day, reaching just over 57 percent, but it was still short of the 60 percent required for passage.
