McDowell County residents voted in favor of the continuation of a school levy Saturday.
The County Clerk's Office reported 757 people turned out in favor of the levy, while 57 voted against it. At 7:30 p.m., voting at 37 precincts across McDowell County had come to a close.
The excess school levy will fund everything from textbooks to teachers salaries through 2018. Voters in McDowell County have supported every levy since 1942.
