Votes are counted and results are in. With 100 percent of precincts reporting, we have updated results from Tuesday’s primary election. As explained in a previous post, the new primary system will send the top two vote getters from Congressional and state legislature races to face off in November’s general elections.
Proposition 28 took 61 percent of the votes, reducing terms for state legislators from 14 to 12 years, while Proposition 29, which would increase the tax on tobacco products by $1, was rejected by 50.8 percent of voters.
