This morning the votes have been counted, and the results are in from Campaign 07. While some are celebrating, Wednesday is a somber day for a local organization.

The future is uncertain for COSI after voters rejected a levy request. The final tally was 51 percent of voters saying no and 48 percent saying yes. It was an emotional election night at COSI as workers and supporters found out the news. There were a lot of tears and hugs.

COSI officials have said before it would close if Issue 14 did not pass, but last night the future of the organization remained unclear.

News 11 is told board members plan to meet in the next seven to ten days to determine what happens next for.
