Lowndes County voters reject school bond issue

COLUMBUS, Miss. (WTVA) — A bond issue for the Lowndes County schools failed to pass Tuesday.

The district was asking for $45.5 million to build a new high school in New Hope, a career tech center, computers for each student, upgraded athletic facilities and other building needs.

Election officials say the vote was 942 yes and 873 no.

Those numbers include the absentee ballots.

Officials say only six affidavit ballots were cast.

The winning margin fell short of the 60 percent needed for the bond issue to pass.
