D91 bond fails, D93 levy passes

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI) - UPDATE: One big question in Bonneville County is whether District 91's record breaking quarter-billion dollar bond will pass.

If passed, they plan to build three new schools and update an existing one.

It looks like 58% is in favor of the bond. This means the bond will not pass since bonds need a 66.6% majority in favor.

Another item in question is District 93's $11.6 million two-year supplemental levy to add updates to its schools.

 58.14% is in favor of authorizing the levy, so the levy does pass.

Some major points of interest in Bonneville County for this election is the District 91 bond and District 93 levy.

District 91 is asking for a quarter-billion dollar bond, the largest in idaho's history, to build new schools and update an existing one. The bond will only be passed if two thirds are in favor.

District 93 is asking for a 2 year 11.6 million dollar supplemental levy. In order to pass, it must get a majority vote.

Earlier, Kailey talked with the Bonneville County clerk, Penny Manning, who has been busy all day doing her best to make sure everything runs smoothly.

“We have been looking at our ballot county. We have a way of tracking the ballots sent. I feel like we have a pretty good turnout. First thing this morning we heard there were lines out the door. I think that’s a good sign we have a large voter turnout," Manning said.

What are the early numbers you have seen come in?

“The number I really know at this point are our early voting and absentee. Our absentee votes were way up from 2018. Our early voting was down about 1400 but we made up for it and then some  with our absentee returns. So walks ins early we expected about a 50% turnout for this election. We will just wait and see if where we really are,” Manning said.

Around the nation there has been some concerns with voting problems and concerns with different things going on. Have you had any issues?

“You know ,there is always the set up to get our poll workers up and going. We have a whole staff of runners we send out to the polls to make sure we are ready at 8:00. Its been going relatively smooth,” Manning said.
