Ellsworth District voters say no to both referendum questionsVoters in the Ellsworth School District have said no to both referendum questions that were on the ballot.
Voters in the Ellsworth School District have said no to both referendum questions that were on the ballot Tuesday.
The first question, involving approval to borrow not more than $2 million for major maintenance items had a 2,969 No (53.5 percent) to 2,577 Yes (46.4) count.
The second, seeking authority to exceed the state-imposed revenue limit by $900,000 annually for five years had a 3,263 No (59.4 percent) to 2,230 Yes (40.6) count.
Superintendent Barry Cain said these results don't include the Town of Oak Grove and therefore aren't final. That's expected, Cain said, to occur this afternoon when the canvassing of the election will take place.
