The USD 434 bond issue and the Lyndon’s half-percent sales tax drew out more than half of the veters who participated in Tuesday’s election.

The USD 434 bond passed by a 790-387 vote, or 71 percent of voter approval. The Lyndon half-cent municipal sales tax failed 146-91, with 62 percent of voters rejecting the measure.

The combined districts accounted for 54 percent of Tuesday’s voters, 1,414 of the 2,621 counted ballots, representing 25 percent of Osage County’s 10,658 registered voters.
