Voters across the country went to the polls yesterday and approved $6.71 billion of municipal bond proposals, nearly two-thirds of the $10.18 billion of bonds for which election results were available, according to data compiled by The Bond Buyer.

Yesterday's general election was the fourth-largest ever, in terms of dollar amounts, for bond submissions and approvals since The Bond Buyer began tracking Election Day results in 1946. It was the busiest election on record, however, with 540 separate ballot proposals. Voters approved 289 of the 469 issues for which results were available yesterday.
