People hit the polls in Peterstown for the last day in the Monroe County School Bond Levy Program election. If the levy passes, the Monroe County Board of Education could build a new Peterstown Elementary and Middle School.

Voters on both sides of the issue cast their ballots at local precincts. Kelly Shrewsbury, a resident of Peterstown, said she voted in favor of the levy because a new school is a necessity for the kids.

"There is just not enough room in the school that they have and they need a better school. They deserve one," Shrewsbury explained.

Polls closed at 7:30 p.m. on November 18th. Check back with 59News to find out the results of the election.


Early voting began for a bond referendum that could decide the fate of two Monroe County Schools. The Monroe County Board of Education will hold its Bond Election this Saturday, November 18th. If the bond passes, a new Peterstown Elementary and Middle School could be built.

Early Voting lasts until Wednesday, November 15th, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m at the Union 911 Center and the Town Hall in Peterstown. People can vote at their usual precincts on election day from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
