Jefferson County Clerk Kathy Marsden counted the final two ballots for Culver to see if they would make a difference in the three vote lead in the election night results.


The two votes counted today were "yes votes" so the final tally appears to be 590 yes to 585 no.


Culver School Officials have been on edge during the last week, waiting to see if their slim lead would hold.


Culver Superintendent of Schools Stephanie Garber is thrilled.


"We had two ballots and they were both yes.. so we won by 5 votes.  So it's pretty much in teh bag.   I'm not sure what to do with myself.  I'm still in shock.   I found out when I was in a district meeting and I had to compose myself ... but then everyone let out a cheer. It's such a relief."


This is the third time that Culver has gone out for a school levy -- and after three tries it finally passed.


The funds will go to add classroom space and to fix antiquanted heating and cooling systems in their schools.
