February Special Election Results Certified

February 27, 2013

The Grays Harbor County Auditor’s Office certified the results of this month’s special elections, and showed that the opinion on the local measures did not change.

35.48% of voters turned out in total locally, and the majority of them who did approved their local measures.

62.83% of Aberdeen voters, 2,540 in all, voted yes on a new Transportation District and tax within the city. The thirteen-hundredths of one percent (0.0013) sales-and-use tax on qualifying purchases will go specifically to finance transportation projects.
In Hoquiam, 1,692 voters, or 73.64%, approved the funding of a new ladder truck for the city. The measure for a new truck, valued up to $1.3 million, had failed a levy in 2011 before passing this month.

I Voted
