Failed FARGODOME expansion vote to be certified

(Fargo, ND)  --  The Fargo Canvassing Board is meeting to certify the December 5th special election.  

The election was held to vote on the expansion to the FARGODOME and the building of an adjacent convention center.  

The measure gained 51-percent approval but that was far short of the 60-percent needed for passage.  

The 140-million-dollar project would have been funded by an increase in sales and lodging taxes in Fargo.
