By a margin of nearly 2-1, voters in Marana Unified School District were defeating a higher secondary property tax override in Tuesday's election.

Results posted just after 8 p.m. Tuesday by the Pima County Recorder's Office showed the override losing 4,802-2,572, a percentage margin of 65.1-34.88 percent.

Voting results were unofficial and unaudited, the recorder's web site indicated Tuesday.

MUSD has a 10 percent budget override in place. It asked for an increase from 10 to 15 percent, a boost that would raise an additional $3.1 million in local property taxes for the school district's general fund. MUSD has indicated it would use the money, if approved, to protect class sizes, help to preserve full-day kindergarten, and support extracurricular and other activities.
