The campaign proved a resounding success – 73% of Raleigh voters cast their ballots in favor of the $80 Affordable Housing Bond. The bond was the largest investment in affordable housing in the city in over two decades.
The result: the final vote included more than 70% of a city-wide yes vote, meaning the campaign was successful in reaching voters and compelling them to support the bond. This is an important marker for Raleigh as it continues to grow and is recognized as a premier regional city for families, employers and all of its citizens.
