Turn out was low and special issues on the ballot for Tuesday’s schoolboard election in eastern Iowa got mixed results. A six-point-four million dollar bond issue in the Eastern Allamakee school district in Lansing failed. The bond would’ve funded an addition to the high school in Lansing and other improvements. The vote was 438 to 395, it needed 60-percent approval to pass. The Nashua-Plainfield, Waverly-Shellrock and Sumner districts passed structural support levies. A measure to change the Postville board seats to all at-large representation failed. An issue in Wapsie-Valley to elect each board member by voters of their respective districts won approval.
