As of the end of day November 21, Federal Way Public Schools’ Capital Levy’s passage rate was at 60.15%. The measure did not require a super majority (60% of the ballots cast) in order to pass, but receiving that level of support is gratifying. So far, over 47,000 ballots have been counted. King County Elections will continue to update the return on their webpage, http://your2.kingcounty.gov/elections/2012nov-general/results/measures/local/federalway.aspx. Final numbers will be certified November 27.
