The Secretary of State's office seems to be doing a good job updating the elections results as provisional/absentee/etc. ballots are counted.
-- Proposition 107 (Hateful Bigoted Gay/Partnership Bashing) is still losing by more than 32,000 votes. I don't see how enough votes will filter in to change that.
-- Unfortunately Prop 106 (State Trust Land Reform) is still losing by more than 36,500 votes. It's defeat is pretty much certain, too.
-- The District 26 Senate results have not budged (at least not that I have seen) throughout the day; Charlene Pesqueira still leads by a meager 146 votes over Al Melvin. The same goes for Jennifer Burns holding her House seat by 458 votes over Pat Fleming.
-- And for those of you following Congressional District 5, Harry Mitchell still leads J.D. Hayworth by just less than 6,000 votes.
I'd be surprised if any of these results -- other than Pesquiera/Melvin -- changed. But stranger things have happened ...
