Update: Lincoln voters unanimously approved the $153 million LPS bond issue.  

Unofficial results from the Lancaster County Election Commissioner's office for the Lincoln School Bond issue as of 6 p.m.:

For:         39,153  66.8%

Against:   19,597  33.2%

According to Lancaster County Election Commissioner David Shively, 33.5 percent of ballots have been collected; that's around 55,000.

Shively says the mail-in only option was a good choice this year due to winter weather. So far, participation is already up nearly 10 percent from the last bond issue vote.

Voters had until 5 p.m. tonight to get their ballots in.
