I admit that I thought it was over only a few days ago. Even last night with Prop. 203 down 3,000 votes, the midterms left me feeling very cynical about its chances. Then this morning came the news that it had made up 1500 votes with 59,000 early and provisional ballots left to count. Tonight, with 10,000 votes to count Prop. 203 is in good shape. It has taken a commanding lead of 4421 votes at the last possible second. Unless the remaining “stoner-forgot-to-mail-in-their-ballots-on-time” votes break heavily against their established trend, Prop. 203 has passed.
