Pima County ran another batch of 11,511 ballots today, leaving just about 500 provisional ballots left to count, according to Pima County spokeswoman Rhonda Bodfield. Those last votes should go through the machines tomorrow.

And with so few ballots left to count, we can safely say that the city of Tucson's road-bond package has passed.

As of today's count, Prop 409 is passing by a mere 936 votes. That's 72,333 in favor and 71,397 opposed.

It doesn't get much close than that.

Mayor Jonathan Rothschild tells The Range via email: "I want to thank the people of Tucson for voting to fix our roads. Mr. Miranda and I intend to assure that the trust and confidence that has been given us proves to be well placed. This is a good first step towards repairing and rebuilding our city."
