Prop 37 Recount…

November 12, 2012
Greetings friends and family! I just received this email below and have already called myself and left a message…. I invite and encourage you to call as well… The worst that can happen is nothing…. So PLEASE, take a moment and call, it goes right to a voicemail..
NEWS!!!!! …do you live in California,..even if you don’ this number and demand recount!!!!:Main Number: (916) 657-2166!… all you need to do is call the Secretary of State and ask for the absentee ballots to be counted in regards to prop 37 I guess there is something like 2 million votes that are uncounted.
This is a common problem. In 2012 in AZ the medical marijuana prop failed at first and then everyone complained and asked for a re-count and then it won by 2,000 votes. SHARE THIS NUMBER and CALLLL!!!!Call in and cause a stir!
PLEASE! this is the number to the actual election division of the sec. of state office :Main Number: (916) 657-2166

    A reality check. The following webpage has a link to a PDF file that gives the Unprocessed Ballot Status for the State of California:

    There are 3,334,495 ballots left to process as of 11/9, but really 11/8 since that is when most counties reported. These ballots WILL be counted. A recount request is not needed for this. This is the difference between a preliminary count and official election results that must be reported by counties 30 days after the election and then is certified within 7 days by the Secretary of State.

    In very close races, the vote-by-mail and the provisional ballots can make a difference, but Prop. 37 has a 573,079 vote difference to overcome so the 3,334,495 ballots left to count would need to have a proportion of Yes be 17.2% higher than that of No, so would require at least 58.6% Yes vs. 41.4% No to pass. Though not impossible, it is unlikely for this to occur.

    An update. As of 11/13, there are now 2,304,250 total estimated remaining votes to count (which means that over 1 million votes were counted in around 5 days so they are making good progress) and the Prop 37 No/Yes difference to overcome is now 5,508,063 – 4,929,582 = 578,481 so now the difference of Yes vs. No for the remaining ballots needs to be 578,481 / 2,304,250 = 25.1% of the remaining votes so the remaining votes need to have Yes of 62.6% vs. No of 37.4% for Prop 37 to pass so it is looking even less likely.
