The two largest school referendums before voters in Wisconsin have both been approved. In Superior, the vote was 55-to-45 percent to borrow $92-million for various district improvements, including reenovating Superior High School and replacing Cooper Elementary. More than 10,000 thousand people voted in Superior
In Hudson, 12,000 ballots were cast as voters approved $93-million for high school and middle school renovations, plus an improved auditorium and athletic fields. Hudson split the proposals into three questions, which all passed by approvals of 53-to-58 percent.
More than 70 Wisconsin school building and tax increase referendums were decided — and voters said yes to five-of-seven other building proposals of more than $30-million dollars each. Large projects were approved in Mukwonago, Ashland, Menomonee Falls, Muskego-Norway, and Ellsworth — while voters said no to borrowing for projects in Grafton and Peshtigo.
