Early voting results are in for the proposed Alvin Community College $48.5 million bond.

According to unofficial early voting results, 53.76 percent of voters, or 736 people, voted against the bond, while 46.24 percent, or 633 people, voted for the bond.

The bond will focus solely on the existing ACC campus, located at 3110 Mustang Road, Alvin.

If the bond passes, voters can expect a possible tax increase of $0.03 per $100 valuation, ACC President Christal Albrecht said.

According to Albrecht, the bond will pay for improvements in three areas: improvements to safety, updated infrastructure and the creation of a new career-focused technical center.
