ORR Third Bond Vote Fails Again

For the third time voters in the Oldham-Ramona-Rutland School District have rejected a bond vote for a new 15.75 million dollar school. Tuesday’s vote saw 53% of voters vote “Yes”, but the state law requires a 60% yes vote to pass the bond. 

Voter turnout was up to 65%, compared to 60% during the last vote in December. That December election saw 54% of voters vote “Yes”. 

The first bond election for the district back in September had a 47% “yes” vote. 

Results from Tuesday’s election are unofficial until canvassed by the School Board. 

ORR School District voters will be back at the ballot box next week, for the district’s School Board election.
