Marijuana still might get legalized for adult use in Arizona because Proposition 205 still has a heartbeat. Over 628,000 ballots still need to be counted in Arizona, said the Secretary of State’s Office. And a majority of those ballots are in Maricopa County, where support for Prop 205 is strongest.
Larger counties like Maricopa and Pima should begin counting early ballots again on Nov 10, after they verify voters’ signatures on the ballot envelopes, reports AZ Central. Maricopa county is capable of processing around 100,000 ballots daily, which means the remaining ballots will be counted by the middle of next week.
At last count, Prop 205 is currently losing 48%-52%, or 929,518 to 1,011,836 votes. With over 600,000 ballots still to count, Prop 205 could win if a majority of those ballots are in favor of the marijuana legalization initiative.
