Mary Richards, KSL Newsradio A very costly election is behind us now, but in breaking down the numbers a surprising trend was seen in the private school voucher vote.

You would think that the side that spends the most on the election would win. Not so in the voucher fight.

The Deseret Morning News took the millions of dollars spent and divided it by the votes received. The pro-voucher side spent about $21 per vote and the anti-voucher side spent about $11 per vote.

Combined, the groups spent about $8 million overall.
