A Royal School District Renovation Bond proposition was narrowly defeated on the February 12, 2013 election ballot in Grant County, which is in Washington.

This proposition would have authorized the Royal School District to increase its debt by $8.75 million by issuing general obligation bonds in that amount. This money would have been used to construct, equip and furnish and addition to the POD Building for third through sixth grades and expand and renovate Royal High School. The bonds would have matured within 15 years.[1]

A 60% super-majority was required for approval.
