Residents in Southeast Gainesville Vote "No" on Annexation
The unofficial results are back-- and the answer is no.
According to the Alachua County Supervisor of Elections website, residents who live just east of Gainesville do not want to become a part of the city.
Out of the over two thousand ballots mailed out, the elections board received just over seven hundred back. Over 93 percent of the residents living in the proposed annexation said no to the idea.
The annexation area included about 1,200 acres. Only residents in that area were able to vote.
