In bond elections, voters in 13 Greater Minnesota school districts approved at least one question while voters in 11 other Greater Minnesota school districts rejected all questions. This 54 percent passage rate is a sizable improvement over the 36 percent passage rate from January-August this year, and last November’s 44 percent passage rate.
It still significantly lags the metro passage rate of 82 percent where only three of seventeen questions were rejected by the voters.
Here’s a look at the results across Greater Minnesota.
