Unofficial results are in, and voters in the Gardner Edgerton School District have approved the $72 million bond issue.

According to the Johnson County Election Office, about 54 percent voted “yes,” and about 46 percent voted “no.”

Out of more than 12,000 registered voters, just over 5,000 submitted ballots.

District administrators plan to use more than half of the bond money to build two new schools to ease overcrowding. The rest of the money will fund a high school athletics addition, improvements to already-existing buildings, land acquisition and technology tools.

Yesterday was the voting deadline. The election office finished counting the ballots and announced the unofficial results shortly after noon today.
