City of Pullman Proposition No. 1, for a new City Hall, ended Election Day with a nearly 400-vote lead for approval.

The initial vote count saw more than 1,100 votes approve the bond. The rejected side received just under 750 votes.

There are still at least a thousand votes left to be counted, meaning this race and most others are too close to call. The next ballot count is scheduled for Thursday afternoon.

The bond would allocate funds for the city to purchase and renovate the Encounter Ministries property for use as a new city hall and recreational center. The bond also finances land for an additional fire station and a city event center at Lawson Gardens.

“The next step would be working with our bond counsel to actually do the sale of the bonds so we could get the income in place to move forward with the other projects,” Lincoln said.

The other bond residents voted on, Proposition No. 2, also referred to as the “Parks and Paths” bond, which would give money for the renovation and creation of city parks and paths. This bond ended the day with 1,300 votes in favor and 540 against.

Pullman voters also had to decide on three City Council and two school board positions.

As of Tuesday night, incumbent Al Sorenson leads Eric Fejeran with 674 votes to 430 votes for Ward 1 and Brandon Chapman leads incumbent Jeff Hawbaker with 218 votes to 154 votes in Ward 3.

For the Ward 2 council position, there are only four votes between Garren Shannon and Dan Records. Records has the edge in votes between the candidates.

Challenger Nathan Roberts is beating incumbent Karl Johanson with 989 votes to 880 votes for Pullman School Board District 4 director. The other school board race, for District 5 director, also sees the challenger leading the incumbent, with Amanda Tanner leading Dean Kinzer with 1,056 votes to 857 votes.
