Hall vote stands
PRINCETON — Thursday’s discovery recount of the April 9 election votes on the Hall High School referendum does not change the results of the final outcome, that the Hall High School District will get a new high school.
On Friday, Bureau County Clerk Kami Hieronymus said the discovery recount was requested by Mary Alice Mueller who had filed a petition in her office with eight signatures asking for the recount of the referendum votes. By statute, only five signatures were required for the discovery recount.
The April 9 election referendum asked voters to approve a bond issue to build a $32 million high school building. The unofficial results from the April 9 election showed the referendum passed by just three votes. 1,714 to 1,711. On April 24, after absentee ballots were received and counted, the final official election results showed the Hall referendum still passed by three votes, with 1,717 yes votes and 1,714 no votes.
