From The Newsroom: The Election Results Round-Up
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.
