Voters approved the amendment to the Council election system by a vote of 3,290 (50.67%) to 3,203 (49.33%).
(The count is unofficial until provisional and overseas ballots are counted and there is an official canvass of votes provided by the county.)
The Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund reports that it is “very concerned” and monitoring the situation, although it would not say at this time whether it plans to file a lawsuit.
