Voters in the Clover School District have approved a $66 million school bond referendum that will allow the district to proceed with nearly a half dozen projects.

Proceeds from the ballot issue will be used to build two new schools, a ninth grade academy, an aquatic center in conjunction with the Upper Palmetto YMCA and fund upgrades to district-owned athletic fields.

Unofficial results show that 2650 people voted in favor of the bond referendum, while 1984 voted against it.

That means more than 57% of those who cast ballots today voted “yes”.

York County Election officials say just over 19% of the registered voters in the school district cast ballots in the referendum.
