Support for Edmonds bond and levy measures continues to grow

Voters in the Edmonds School District continued to raise their support for the propositions on the Tuesday, Feb. 11, ballot in returns posted Friday, Feb. 14, with the percentage of "yes" votes gaining on both proposals.

Support for the School District's renewal of a maintenance-and-operations levy, which needs a simple majority to pass, grew from 62.88 percent Tuesday to 64.36 percent Wednesday, 65.09 percent Thursday and 65.22 percent Friday, with almost all expected ballots counted.

The District's bond issue for school construction and renovation, which needs a 60 percent majority to pass, grew in support from 61.16 percent Tuesday to 62.52 percent Wednesday, 63.13 percent Thursday and 63.22 percent Friday.

County elections officials had expected to have all ballots on-hand counted Friday.

Snohomish County Elections Manager Garth Fell says that the only ballots left to count are a few from military and overseas voters and some from people who return ballots after correcting signature problems.

Elections officials plan to post updated returns Friday, Feb. 21, and finish counting ballots before final certification of the results Feb. 25.

Through Thursday morning, officials had received ballots from 29.33 percent of registered voters compared to the countywide average of 28.59 percent.

The Edmonds School District, including Brier, Edmonds, Lynnwood, Mountlake Terrace, Woodway and nearby unincorporated areas, had the sixth best ballot-return rate of the 13 Snohomish County school districts with propositions on the ballot.
