Late Friday night, three days after Election Day, the Pima County Elections Department posted the final result for Amphitheater School District's Propositions 403 and 404.

Proposition 403, the maintenance and operations override, was approved by 26 votes, with 9,773 (50.07 percent) in favor, 9,747 (49.93 percent) against.

Proposition 404, the capital override, was defeated by 356 votes, with 9,960 (50.91 percent) against, 9,604 (49.09 percent) in favor. 

Proposition 403 will continue the current maintenance and operations budget override of allowing the district to exceed the current budget by 10 percent, totally about $7.5 million, each school year. Proposition 404 would have added a capital budget override of about $2 million each school year.
