Amendment W, cutting ballot size, fails


Amendment W, which scales back the verbiage used on ballots for judges races, earned 53 percent of votes cast, as of 10:19 p.m., Tuesday – not enough to meet a threshold for constitutional amendments.

Support for the measure failed to garner at least 55 percent of votes, which is required for constitutional amendments.

This simple amendment would have allowed county clerks to shorten a typically lengthy section of county election ballots.
