Voters approve Brewster, Bridgeport school levies

Chelan fails in Okanogan County, Omak on the fence

BREWSTER/BRIDGEPORT –Unofficial results from the special school levy election released by the Okanogan County Auditor’s office Tuesday evening, Feb. 11, reflect mixed results for nine propositions submitted by seven school districts in Chelan, Douglas and Okanogan counties.
Quad City school districts Brewster and Bridgeport saw their levies win approval by 21 and 11 percent respectively. Brewster’s levy passed 60.97 to 39.03 percent, while Bridgeport’s won approval 55.56 to 44.44 percent accordingly to preliminary counts released by Okanogan County Chief Deputy Auditor and Elections Administrator Jamie Groomes.
“The next count will be Friday, Feb. 14 at 5 p.m.,” said Groomes. “We have approximately 100 ballots to count.”
Okanogan County school districts in Tonasket, Oroville, and Methow Valley also won levy approval while Lake Chelan in Chelan County went down to defeat. Lake Chelan had two propositions on the ballot, and both lost by 15 percent, 62.50 no to 37.50 yes in Okanogan County.
Omak’s levy appears to be questionable with preliminary figures showing a one-vote difference between approval and failure, 890 no to 889 yes with some 100 Okanogan County ballots yet to weigh in. the levies require only a simple majority to win approval.
