Bellville ISD Bond Goes Down In Resounding Defeat

The Bellville ISD Bond was soundly defeated in yesterday’s election.  Both Prop A and Prop B saw defeat in both early voting and election day turnout. However, if the results showed anything, it was that Prop B was the more disliked of the two being defeated by an almost 3 to 1 ratio.  Early voting was heavy with over half of the total being cast before the November 2 election day.  According to voting demographics, this election also clearly favored an much older crowd.

 

Prop A lost by almost 2 to 1 ratio with:

For 34.8%
Against 65.2%

 

Prop B lost by almost 3 to 1 ratio with:

For  27.3%
Against 72.4% Against

For those who don’t know, Prop A was the $104.6M part for the construction of a new high school which included spaces for programs, including industry-based programs, ag, athletics & collaborative learning.  Prop B was for $7.8M and was for the construction of a sports complex at the new high school site designed for baseball, softball, and tennis with restrooms and concessions.  You can read our original coverage of the bond HERE.
