Measure B1 Backers to Pay for Partial Recount

The backers of Measure B1, the countywide tax measure that would have raised $7.8 billion for transportation and smart-growth projects, have decided to pay for a partial recount of ballots cast in the November 6 election. Measure B1 fell just 721 votes short of passing, garnering 66.53 percent of the vote, 0.14 percent shy of the 66.67 percent it needed to win. If the partial recount produces more votes for Measure B1, then supporters plan to pay for a full recount of all the 600,000 ballots cast in the election countywide.
