CARRINGTON, N.D. (AP) - Voters in Carrington have rejected a proposal to build a new $23.5 million elementary school.

KSJB radio reports that unofficial results from Tuesday’s election show about 49 percent of the 1,432 voters opposed to the proposed facility. The measure needed 60 percent approval to pass.

WDAZ-TV reports that the proposal would have raised annual property taxes about $320 per $100,000 worth of home value.

KQDJ radio reports that turnout for the election was high. As a comparison, school board elections in the district typically draw about 120 voters.
