Columbia Falls School District 6 voters approved a high school building reserve levy 2,031-1,576 to fund a new roof on the classroom wing of the high school. They also approved a high school operational levy 1,872-1,743.

They did not, however, approve the elementary operational levy. It failed 1,861-1,643.

The district was seeking a $430,667 operational levy for the elementary district and a $157,463 operational  levy for the high school district. The building reserve request was $2.75 million two years to replace the leaking roof on the east wing of the high school.

Turnout for the mail-in election was more than 40%, the highest in recent memory.
