    The Unified Law Enforcement special vote was held yesterday, with polls opening at noon and closing at 8. Needing only a simple majority (51 percent) to pass, the levy passed by a wide margin. The total was 144 yes, 63 no, there were 2 votes absentee yes, and 7 for no. That brought the total to 146 for, 70 against. Great job Humboldt!
