Tuesday night's Special Election in Ward County calling for the creation of a Hospital district, goes down in defeat.

A whopping majority of voters, gave it thumbs down.

68 percent said no, while only 32 percent were for it .

Creating a hospital district would have put a small group in charge of the hospital affairs, much like a school board.

Many Ward County Residents say that having a Hospital district would mean higher taxes.
