JPS Referendum Defeated

Jamestown residents went to the polls yesterday in a special election to vote on the The Jamestown Public School Referendum, a $34.4 million general obligation school building bond for expansion, repair and upgrades throughout the school district.

According to unofficial results the referendum was defeated. There were 1,140 votes in favor and 2,769 against. The 3,909 voter turnout was more than the 3,517 Stutsman County voters who turned out for the June 26 primary election.
