Results are in – Bartlesville Passed all 4 Propositions, but…


All four propositions passed.  However, Proposition 2 (which included Price Tower Park and Amphitheater) passed by a much thinner margin at a little over 66%; the other propositions passed by about 79%, 83% and 81% respectively.  A voter turnout of 4,138 people made this decision for a city with a population of approximately 34,748.   Bartlesville is in a declining population mode which means fewer people will be paying into the property tax base to cover these bonds.   That is about 8% of the population voting in this special election.

Maybe we should eliminate special elections and have these matters on general election ballots so that more people would participate.  Just a thought…
