failedby the largest amount Voters turned down the proposal votes to The tallies on other propositions were closer but they still failed The proposition for technolo gy upgrades had the narrowestmar gin being turned down by slightly more than 500 votes Im encouraged by the big turnout involved in their school said Krueger However on the other side of the coin Im Krueger said that while the new school issue was controversial he thought at least the expansions and renovations proposition and technol ogy proposition stood a chance of vot er approval Rejecting the technology proposal put

results 100 page 12A Confused voters fill CISD polls By DEMISE DZIUK KNIGHT Staff Writer Confusion about where to cast a bal lot combined with a long wait in line left a bad taste in the mouths of many Comal Independent School District voters Freda Walker election judge at the Mountain Valley Elementary polling site said turnout had been heavy since polls opened at 7 In fact more than the usual number of people had cast ballots on the million bond proposal Were she said We havent had a break all In the morning voters waited up to an hour to exercise their right to vote For some that wait was a little too long and they left Walker said But those votes werent lost she said All intended to come back later and Im quite sure they she said Voters heading to the polls later in the day waited 15 to 20 Fountain said the wait was long enough to make For those at the polls in the after noon the biggest complaint was the confusion about where to go to cast a ballot If I hadnt read the paper I wouldnt have known where to Fountain said Billie Albrecht lives just outside of Gruene and went to Frazier Elemen tary to vote No one was at the polling place when she got there so she went to the CISD administration office where she was told she would have to go to Canyon Lake If it hadnt been such an important election I probably wouldnt have vot she said Theyve messed up if you ask CISD business director Abel Cam pos said that in May of 1994 the first trustee election was conducted using the singlemember district method At that time voting lines were drawn and have not been changed since He said changing where people voted would have required approval by the original committee that established the district lines the CISD board of trustees and the federal government Since May of 1994 everyone has voted at the same he said Campos said the confusion was caused by the fact that voters in CISD election do not vote at the same place they do for the city county and state elections For example a resident who might have voted at Canyon High School for the Nov 4 state election would have had to vote at Mountain Valley Elementary in the bond elec tion If these people have not voted in a school election in a while it might be new to them and cause some confu Campos said Some voters saw the problems as a way for the district to deter possible votes of opposition Lynn Fountain Turn
