(SOUTH HARRISON, CO. Mo.) Voters have rejected an area school bond for the third time.

Voters rejected the $4.2 million dollar bond to help pay to build a new middle school for the South Harrison R-2 School District.

This time, the district asked for less money, but it didn't seem to make a difference.

The bond failed with 38-percent of the vote.

School officials say the new building is needed to help relieve overcrowding.

The bond failed both in last April's election and in the August primary.
