EVERETT — School levy proposals in Lake Stevens, Marysville and Snohomish are still passing after another batch of ballots was counted Friday.
Measures to provide local property tax money in all three districts were failing after ballot counts on Tuesday and Wednesday. They crept over the 50 percent requirement during a Thursday count of additional ballots.
After Friday’s count, the “yes” vote was 50.39 percent in Lake Stevens, 52.21 percent in Marysville and 50.26 percent in Snohomish. It takes a simple majority to pass a school levy.
The news wasn’t so good for school district leaders in Darrington, where the levy is likely to fail. By state law, school districts can try twice in a calendar year to pass a levy.
