CLINTON, Miss. (AP) - Clinton voters will decide a $23.5 million school bond issue on Tuesday.
Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.
For a school bond issue to pass, state law requires at least 60% of those casting ballots to vote in favor.
The Clarion-Ledger reports the district's last two bond issues passed by 85.1% in 1993 and 86.6% in 2004.
The bonds would pay for construction of a "school within a school" to house grades 2-5.
About $900,000 would be used to refurbish Clinton Junior High and Sumner Hill Junior High. The old Eastside Elementary would house the district's administrative offices and its Alternative School; Northside Elementary likely would be razed.
