Medford tanking bond measure for pools

Medford voters appear to be sinking measure to float $14.5 million in bonds to replace the city's aging pools at Jackson and Hawthorne parks.

Early, unofficial returns just released show the measure failing, with 56.3 percent of ballots so far against the measure and 43.6 percent of votes in favor, according to the Jackson County Clerk. In the first round of results released, the tally is 9,686 votes in favor of the measure and 12,515 votes against.

Of ballots counted so far, 1,272 Medford voters didn't vote on the measure.

An update will follow when more votes are counted.
