Elections were held across Michigan on Tuesday, and school bonds were on many ballots.

Unofficial election results show that school bonds in Ludington and Leland passed, but a $47.8 million proposal for Benzie County Central Schools narrowly failed by 114 votes, or just under 2 percentage points. Another proposal in Kingsley Area Schools overwhelmingly failed with 73 percent of voters saying ‘no.’

Several other communities had municipal bonds go to a vote. A proposal to improve the Kaliseum Recreation Complex in Kalkaska Area Schools failed, while a bond to improve fire and emergency response in Leland passed.
