SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 News) Utahns weighed in on several propositions this election season.
Political experts said it was one of the factors that drove many voters to the polls causing such a large turnout.
Here’s how the Propositions fared on election night:
Prop 2: Proposition 2 asked voters to approve medical cannabis for people with certain health conditions.
- For: 53%
- Against: 46%
Prop 3: Proposition 3 seeks to expand Medicaid in the state as originally called for under the Affordable Care Act.
- For: 54%
- Against: 45%
Prop 4: Proposition 4 is aimed at fighting gerrymandering and would create an independent redistricting commission that would make recommendations to the legislature. This commission would not have binding authority.
- For: 50%
- Against 49%
Early numbers show a close race. Both sides of the issue are separated by only a few thousand votes.
Better Boundaries Campaign Co-Chairs Jeff Wright (R) and Ralph Becker (D) released the following statement late Tuesday night:
“Current election returns are too close to declare victory. We expect after the dust has settled, the will of voters will prove that Utahns are against gerrymandering and for Proposition 4. We will be monitoring the results and provide updates when appropriate.”
