The Sumner and White River school districts' maintenance and operation levies were passing with greater than 60 percent approval margins, according to the Pierce County Auditor's office as of today, Wednesday.
The Dieringer School District ran a bond for expansion, modernization and technology, which also passed.
All three districts also received the voter turnout necessary to validate the election.
The Sumner and White River districts ran a mail-only maintenance and operation levy. The measures failed during traditional voting in February and this was the final opportunity this year for the districts to ask voters for approval of the levies.
The Dieringer bond was a regular election at polling places.
The election will be certified May 5.
