Getting the ball rolling, as it were

Turnout in Ye Olde Precinct looks to be pretty good for the “NBA tax” vote; I cast ballot number 558 at a quarter past five. I have no idea how the neighborhood actually voted, though the “Big League City” signs outnumber the “No Sales Tax” signs by a factor of seven to one. I think it will pass, though not overwhelmingly so.

Update, 9 pm: With about three-quarters of the precincts in, Mayor Cornett figures 60-40 is good enough to win, and maybe it is, though it still seems like jumping the gun to me. Then again, he presumably knows which precincts are still out, and I don’t.

Update, 9:30 pm: Okay, he’s right and I’m wrong. With everything in, though technically still unofficial, it’s 62-38.
