Enterprise Bridge

Erection Day

The Secretary of State is reporting 91% of the vote counted, and all of the statewide propositions are failing. The two closest races are 73, the parental notification prop (52.2-47.8%) and 75, the public employees union dues (52.7-47.3%). The numbers say the urban counties count the slowest--Contra Costa, LA, San Bernardino, San Joaquin, and San Diego are dragging the ass end. So I think both of those props will stay failing.

If you look at the county-by-county vote on 73, it looks almost identical to the 2004 Presidential results, which is about what I'd expect. If you like Bush, you probably hate women. :-)
