As of Nov. 13, the Maricopa County Recorder’s Office stated that 112,000 early ballots and 55,000 provisional ballots still need to be counted.
This means there are currently 1,197,000 votes against Prop 205 and 1,115,000 supporting it, a difference of approximately 82,000 votes, according to ABC 15.
For Prop 205 to succeed it would require that approximately 125,000 – roughly 75% – of the remaining 167,000 uncounted ballots in Maricopa County must vote ‘yes’ on Prop 205.
If Prop 205 fails, Arizona’s medical marijuana industry is predicted to quickly bloom as demand for Arizona medical marijuana cards will increase significantly. Arizona medical marijuana doctors and dispensaries have prepared for the rush of new medical marijuana patients.
