Most of the time, ballot measures that start slow, or appear to be sliding to defeat, don't rebound.  For example, The Link project in Kennewick started off well behind and election officials say it's not likely it will come back, despite nearly 10,000 votes still to be counted as of Wednesday.

But Pasco's School Bond is, according to sources, within 27 votes of passing as of the last vote count.

The bond would provide a wide variety of improvements and upgrades throughout the district including two new elementary schools, a new middle school and refurbish Stevens Middle School.

The bond needs 60 percent to pass, it's at 59.7, according to the Tri City Herald.
