The Duluth News Tribune reports over 70 percent of voters were against it.

According to the district, the money would've been used for renovations and an expansion - a solution to overcrowding. Homeowners would've had to pay $270 per year on a home valued at $150,000 for 20 years.

Several who were opposed raised concerns that this would hurt tax payers and suggested class sizes be capped.
