TEA, S.D. (AP) - A ballot recount has confirmed the defeat by two votes of a $9.9 million bond issue proposed by the Tea School District.

The votes were recounted Wednesday.

The rejected measure called for adding elementary school classrooms and a performing arts center. It was the third school bond measure rejected by Tea voters within a year.

Results of the May 13 election showed 912 votes for the measure and 611 against it. Support was 59.88 percent, but two votes short of the needed 60 percent.

The recount showed 912 yes votes and 610 no votes. One vote against the measure was determined invalid.
