Arizona’s Medical Marijuana Initiative Not Dead Yet

Arizona’s Proposition 203 to legalize medical marijuana in the state, which was just about written off as a “No” with slightly over 50% of the vote, still has a chance of passing according to the latest count of late ballots.

From ABC News:

The measure was about 3,100 votes below the 50 percent plus one needed for passage after more votes were counted on Thursday afternoon. But by Thursday night when more totals were posted, the measure was losing by less than 1,500 votes.

Elections officials say about 14,000 early ballots and 45,000 provisional ballots are left to be processed and counted from the Nov. 2 election. Most are in Maricopa County with rest in Gila, Coconino, Yuma and Yavapai counties. Officials have until Friday to complete the count.

It isn’t quite over yet. My fingers are crossed!
