These are the near final election results for Missoula in 2015, with less than 200 provisional ballots left to be counted:

The biggest story of the night is a come-from-behind victory for the School District No.1 Highschool Bond, which was failing during an original count, but recovered after more ballots poured in.

"Between 9:30 at night and 2:30 in the morning, about 1,200 ballots were left to be counted, or so we thought, and then it turned out there were several thousand more," Said MCPS Spokeswoman Hatton Littman. "Literally five boxes of ballots showed up to be counted."

In the end, there were 14020 Yes votes to 13838 No Votes, a difference of just 182.

A Mill Levy in School District 40 also had a come behind victory, by just 10 votes. The final tally was       939 For          and          929  Against.
