Transit Proposition Awaiting Further Vote Counting

When the numbers came in last night, Spokane Transit's Proposition 1 for a 0.3 percent sales tax increase to pay for improvements to public transit was too close to call, according to this article in the Spokesman-Review.

More results will be released tonight and it's rumored that about 500 ballots came in without signatures on them and election workers are trying to authenticate those ballots. So it could go either way at this point. We'll keep you updated.
