Voters in Curry and Roosevelt counties approved bond questions in all-mail elections that concluded Tuesday evening.
A pair of questions were approved by Clovis voters. A question to renew $10 million in bonds, last renewed in 2017, passed with two-thirds of the vote, 2,479-1,228. A separate question on a capital improvements tax question just missed a 60% yes vote, with 2,168 votes for and 1,463 against.
A total of 3,835 mail ballots were returned by voters in the Clovis district. The bond question had 124 undervotes and four overvotes, while the tax question had 198 undervotes and six overvotes.
The Portales school district's bond election had the highest approval rate at 72%, with 1,175 votes for and 458 against.
Floyd's election was much closer, with voters approving taxes by an 82-63 count -- 56.6% of the vote.
Votes are considered unofficial until canvasses are approved by their respective county commissions. The Roosevelt commission meets Tuesday, while the Curry commission will meet Feb. 25.
