RICHLAND, WA - The Richland School District levy is looking good so far Tuesday night.

Currently, the yes votes are leading the no votes 65 to 35 percent.

If this operations levy passes, it doesn't mean the tax rate for voters will increase - it actually stays the same. The levy is just replacing the current levy  that expires at the end of 2014.

Every two years, the district asks residents to renew it.

"The levy is a replacement levy and it accounts for 20% of our budget. It's really important to the educational future of our students, this is a good night," Richland School Board member Rick Jansons expressed to NBC Right Now.

The next round of results for Benton County will be released Wednesday afternoon around 2PM.

So far, the county has seen the voter turnout just under 32 percent.
