HANNIBAL, Mo. — The Hannibal Public School District’s Proposition Innovation got a yes from Marion and Ralls County voters on Tuesday’s ballot.

Proposition Innovation, which will allow the school district to borrow $30 million to complete the Hannibal Innovation Campus and make other needed improvements, was approved in a 1,706 to 780 vote.
