VOTERS IN CLAY COUNTY, SOUTH DAKOTA HAVE SOUNDLY DEFEATED A FORTY-ONE MILLION DOLLAR BOND ISSUE THAT WOULD HAVE FUNDED A NEW COURTHOUSE, JAIL AND LAW ENFORCEMENT CENTER.

THE BOND WAS DEFEATED BY A VOTE OF 1544 TO 766.

VOTER TURNOUT WAS JUST UNDER TWENTY NINE PERCENT.

THE CURRENT COURTHOUSE WAS BUILT IN 1912 AND THE LAW ENFORCEMENT CENTER WAS ADDED IN 1989.
