Election 2019

Lewis County Auditor Larry Grove locks the ballot box as ballots prepare to be counted Tuesday night at the Lewis County Historical Courthouse in Chehalis.

While Centralia’s levy renewal attempt fared badly at the polls Tuesday, other school districts had more success. 

Adna School District’s two-year replacement levy was passing Tuesday night with 57 percent of the vote. Of 1,125 total votes counted, 646 were in favor of the levy. 

In Chehalis, a four-year replacement levy was passing Tuesday with 53.56 percent of the vote. Of 3,120 total votes, 1,671 were in favor of the levy.

Morton School District’s four-year levy was also passing with 62 percent of the vote Tuesday, or 390 of 627 total votes. 

Pe Ell School District’s two-year replacement levy was passing Tuesday with 63.6 percent of the vote, or 252 of 396 total votes.

Rochester School District’s replacement levy is passing with 57 percent of the vote, or 1,643 votes of  2,818 total. Rochester’s capital improvement bond — requesting $57 million in funding, is currently not passing, with 54 percent of ballots casting “yes” votes. Bonds require a 60 percent supermajority. 

Tenino’s replacement levy is also passing with 55.9 percent or 1,173 of a total of 2,096 votes. 

More votes will be tallied Wednesday afternoon, after The Chronicle’s press deadline for the Thursday edition.
