The El Paso County election website is starting to show some results. As of now,
34.08 about 17 percent of the local polls are reporting (though that doesn't represent the mail-in ballots and early voting numbers — which are included in the percentages below). Here are a few of the results. (You can find all the details here.)
County Question 1A (MMJ center ban): 50.92 percent YES
City Question 2B (TABOR funds, roads-bridges): 72.36 percent YES
City Question 2C (TOPS maintenance money): 57.04 percent YES
City Question 300 (strong mayor): 59.02 percent YES
And in regards to that last one, Indy reporter J. Adrian Stanley spoke with Mary Ellen McNally, one of the Strong Mayor campaign coordinators, who said, "I guess I'm very encouraged that the voters of Colorado Springs have seen the necessity of changing our form of government. We need a total change to bring us into the future to make us a viable community."
