Early voters were showing their opposition to a $23 million Chapel Hill school bond proposal.

Some 214 voters, or 52.8 percent, were against the proposal, while 191 votes, or 47.2 percent, were against it.

The Chapel Hill school district is seeking $23 million in bonds to renovate and expand the middle school by adding up to 15 classes and renovating the band hall.

A stage would be added to the cafeteria for the theater department, and the entryway into the campus would be revamped for more security.
