The top local stories this morning from the KERA Newsroom: Voter turnout for this election was a modest 11 percent statewide. Turnout tends to be low in elections where there’s not a big race on the ballot. 

Local election results:

  • In Dallas, 60 percent of voters approved a $1.6 billion bond package for city schools.
  • Other North Texas school districts had successful bond elections. Highland Park, Allen, Rockwall and Grand Prairie voters approved bond packages in their respective districts.
  • Statewide, Texans overwhelmingly voted in favor of all seven constitutional amendments on the ballot.

You can listen to North Texas stories weekdays at 8:20 a.m. and 6:20 p.m. on KERA 90.1 FM.
