Recount: Still no new middle school for Ellensburg
KITTITAS COUNTY, Wash. -- Ellensburg still isn't getting a new middle school even after a recount.

The $39 million bond measure fell short once again Thursday.

The Kittitas County auditor said the voting results came out exactly the same as the original count with 59.89% approving. It needed 60% approval to pass.

If nine people would have voted yes instead of no, the measure would have passed.

A recount can be requested one more time. The vote would become official after that.
