After a mechanical error forced a recount of votes late Tuesday night, the Glenwood Community School District Instructional Support Levy vote has ended in a dead heat – 434 "Yes" votes and 434 "No" Votes.
If the tie holds up, the ISL has failed. A majority of "yes" votes are needed for passage, meaning at least 435 "Yes" votes were needed for the levy to be approved.
An initial count of ballots after Tuesday’s election showed the levy passing by a count of 430-426. The recount took place after election workers determined 12 ballots did not get counted as a result of a malfunction with the electronic ballot-counting machine.
