ANDREWS COUNTY - Residents opposed to the 75-million dollar bond asked the Secretary of State's Office to send an election observer to Andrews to keep an eye on things.

That observer found no irregularities.

The report was released on Tuesday and Andrews County officials say they are pleased with the findings.

The County Clerk says the observer was very pleased with how the May 9th election was carried out.

Andrews County voters passed the bond by three votes.

The money will help Waste Control Specialists (WCS) build a new disposal site for low-level radioactive waste.

The group "No Bonds for Billionaires" asked for the State's watchful eye since WCS footed the bill for the election.

WCS is now moving forward with their plans for the disposal site.
