The Kittitas County Auditor says the decision on a middle school bond is too close to call.

So far 59.6 percent of ballots returned are in favor of the bond, with 40.4 percent rejecting it.

The Ellensburg School District is asking voters to approve a 39 million dollar bond to construct a new middle school near Ellensburg High School.

A bond measure must receive at least 60 percent voter approval to pass.
