Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. -- The Yakima county auditor says her office has seen a steady flow of ballots coming in, for the February 14 Special Election.

Voters in Yakima will decide on whether to pass a school bond for the Naches Valley and Selah School Districts.

As of Tuesday, the county auditor's office has received 40 percent of the voter turnout needed, but will still need a 60 percent majority "yes" votes for the bonds to pass.

"Our turnout's really good and relatively the same as it was two years ago. So people are taking an interest in it, and it's been a steady flow of ballots," said Yakima county auditor Corky Mattingly, on the voter turnout for this type of election with school levies and bonds.

As of Tuesday 6:45 p.m., about 37.5 percent of the 86,418 ballots have been returned to the auditor's office.
