Results are still trickling in, and contests for nine ballot measures remain too close to call.
- Arizona: 99% of precincts have reported, and three measures are still hanging by a thread. Proposition 110, a legislative referendum dealing with state trust lands, is at 49.81%. Proposition 112, changing the deadline for submitting initiative petition signatures, is at 49.93%. Proposition 203, an initiative to legalize medical marijuana, is at 49.75%.
- Georgia: With 97% of precincts reporting, Amendment 3 is at 49.9%. It would allow the state to enter into multi-year contracts for long-term transportation projects.
- Maine: With 93.2% of the vote in, a casino initiative is teetering at 50.4%.
- Nebraska: 99.76% of precincts have reported, and Amendment 1, would permit municipalities to use additional fund sources for economic development projects. It's at 50.6%.
- New Mexico: Bond Proposition D, a higher education capital projects bond, is at 49.8% with 31 of 33 counties reporting.
- Washington: Initiative 1100, one of two initiatives proposing the privatization of liquor sales, has 48.1% of the vote. And SJR 8225, a legislative proposal dealing with state debt authority, has 51.1%. All but one county in Washington voted by mail yesterday, and ballots had to be postmarked, not received, by election day. That means ballots will continue to trickle in over the next few days, and it could be as long as a week before we can be reasonably certain about results.
