In Tuesday’s mid-term general election, Brewster County voters reelected Judge Eleazar Cano, and approved a $22.588 million school bond.
Of 7,282 registered voters in the county, 4,144 cast ballots, for a 56.91 percent turnout. Early voting accounted for 3,146 of the total.
After failing in early voting, the much-debated Alpine ISD bond proposition pulled through on election day, garnering 3,246 total votes, with 1,644, or 50.65 percent, in favor and 1,602, or 49.35 percent, against. Proceeds from the $22.588 million bond will be used to construct a new academic building for Alpine High School, along with other improvements.
