WAHPETON, N.D. (AP) — Voters in the southeastern North Dakota town of Wahpeton have approved a $30 million school building project.
Wahpeton Superintendent Rick Jacobson tells The Forum newspaper that unofficial results of the election showed 88 percent of those voting Tuesday approved the project.
Voters also gave approval to funding the project by having the school district increase its debt service.
The project would build a new grade school and remodel the middle and high schools.
The district earlier dropped a plan to offer free hot dogs to voters during the bond issue vote. North Dakota Secretary of State Al Jaeger had said state law prohibits any enticement that could be viewed as a method to influence an election.
