The fate of a local option budget increase in the Andover school district is still up in the air.

Residents in the district, which lies in two counties, voted last Tuesday on whether to raise the Andover local option budget by 1 percentage point, with a mill levy decrease from 2.5 mills instead of 3 mills.

Canvassing on Monday found Butler County voters rejected the increase, 856 to 744. But when those results were added to Sedgwick County's votes, the issue was tied 1,575 to 1,575.

Sedgwick County still has to canvass its votes.

Sedgwick County election commissioner Tabitha Lehman says the county's vote canvass should be completed by Thursday or Friday.
