New elementary school vote fails in Bemidji
Bemidji school officials did not receive the community support they were hoping for.
In complete but unofficial results Tuesday, 67 percent of voters turned down a $13 million bond package to build a new elementary school.
In raw numbers, 4,291 voters said "no" to the bond issue, while 2,086 voters said "yes," according to unofficial results from the Beltrami County Auditor's Office.
The school board will officially canvass election results next Tuesday.
