School levies approved
June 17, 2008 · Updated 2:56 PM
All three island voters approved their school districts maintenance and operations levies and by wide margins.
The votes as of Tuesday night, March 12, were as follows:
Orcas: 1382 (74 percent) yes, 497 no (26 percent)
Lopez: 710 yes (71 percent) 265 no (29 percent)
San Juan: 1933 yes (76 percent) 621 no (24 percent)
School levies need a 60 percent yes vote for approval.
Some late arriving election returns still must be counted by the San Juan County Elections Department, but they wont change the results.
