2019 Bond Election

Thank You Rio Rancho! Voters Say "Yes!" to Bond Issue
Posted on 11/06/2019

Student with plans and buildings: RR: Invest, Improve, Ignite

Thanks to support from Rio Rancho voters, RRPS will be able to move forward with new classrooms for career-technical education, replacement of outdated heating and air conditioning systems, and more!

Unofficial results indicate about 72% of those going to the polls said "yes" to the district's $60 million bond proposal.  Passage permits the school district to issue new bonds as old ones are retired, maintaining the current tax rate (no tax increase!).  

The results below are unofficial pending the election canvass on November 14 and certification by the NM Secretary of State:

For:  6,041   71.96%
Against:  2,354   28.04%
Total votes cast:  8,395

The turnout is by far the largest ever recorded for a Rio Rancho Public Schools election.  Thank you to everyone who took the time to go to the polls and for your support of teaching and learning in Rio Rancho.
