Proposition 103, the statewide ballot issue to provide more funding for public education, is headed for a lopsided defeat in early results.
With 49 percent of the state vote counted, Prop 103 is losing by 65 to 35 percent. The raw total is 334,101 no votes, to 181,107 yes.
El Paso County is contributing to that margin with a 45,000 spread: 75,459 no to 30,152 yes. That's more than 70 percent disapproval.
