Bond measure for new Ellensburg school falls short
KITTITAS COUNTY, Wash. -- A $39 million bond measure to build a new middle school in Ellensburg fell short of passing on the final count.

Election officials certified the vote Tuesday with 59.89 percent approving it.

The bond needed a 60 percent supermajority to pass.

The Kittitas County auditor said it would have passed if nine people who voted no would have voted yes instead.
