JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) - Jamestown residents have narrowly rejected a $19 million school bond issue.

KSJB radio reports that unofficial results from Tuesday’s special election show that 58 percent of voters approved the measure, but a 60 percent majority was required.

The bond issue would have funded improvements to school buildings.

Stutsman County Auditor Casey Bradley says interest in the election was high, with nearly 12 percent of eligible voters casting ballots. He says that was about double what officials had expected.
