Live election results: School board 'reformers' ousted
Cathy Kipp and Rob Pettersen are poised for victory in the Poudre School District Board of Education election, and Colorado voters will let the state keep nearly $66 million in marijuana taxes instead of voting for tax refunds.
At 8:50 p.m., returns from state and local elections offered few surprises Tuesday night. Fort Collins voters asked whether they support the city investigating the possibility of starting its own broadband Internet service have answered with a resounding yes — the proposition has received 83 percent approval in early returns.
And while county totals showed Colorado voters supporting statewide Proposition BB to allow Colorado to keep roughly $66 million in marijuana tax revenues, 9News reporter Brandon Ritteman reported that a temporary technical glitch on the Colorado Secretary of State Office website caused totals for the yes and no votes to be switched, making it appear the measure was failing. By 7:46 p.m. the glitch had been fixed.
Shortly after 8 p.m., the Associated Press called the race, saying the proposition passed.
South of Fort Collins, Loveland-area voters have given roughly 66 percent to 69 percent favor to Jeff Swanty, Denise Montagu, Pam Howard and David Levy in the hotly contested Thompson School District board race, as so-called "reform" candidates trailed in early returns. In similar fashion, three conservative "reform" candidates in Jefferson County Schools were recalled.
Here are the contested races we're following Tuesday night:
