That was the razor thin margin of approval for the Enumclaw School District bond proposition after the May 8 count posted on the King County Elections website.
April 28 the count was at 58.64 percent approval to 41.36 rejected, about 74 votes under 60 percent.
April 30 was the first time the approval count moved over the 60 percent mark, by six votes. On May Day it dropped three votes under the line. May 4 it was one vote shy of the line.
May 6 the tally crept over 60 percent by one.
“We very hopeful and very appreciative for this community,” Nancy Merrill said, cochair of the 4rKids4rFuture Bond Campaign. “If there is ever a time when it shows your votes matter. This is the time.”
Merrill also said her cochair, Johna Thomson, “did a ton of work. It was good team.” She said many community members came together to work on the 4rKids4rFuture Bond Campaign.”
According to King County Elections mandatory recounts do not apply to bond measures. Recounts in bond races must be requested and paid for by the person seeking a recount.
The Canvassing Board met Tuesday to certify the election. Check the website, www.courierherald.com for an update on the election results.
