Why are you reporting county numbers for statewide issues? The results you posted for the propositions are from Santa Clara County only. It is misleading. You should include a link that the true results are on the state website. Better yet, include both county and state results side-by-side. Look at your numbers for prop 29. You show it winning by a huge margin. But in fact, it's going down to defeat (sadly). Why not do a few more clicks and present all the facts?

hi sue and thank you for your comment. our intent was to provide information on how county voters were voting in all races and in no way meant to be misleading. if you click on the link provided at the bottom of the chart for the California Secretary of State, you can see all the results for statewide races, and even for countywide races, that provide numbers for the whole state and not just the county. since we are a localized news source, we strive to report on what's happening in our immediate communities and to report on what residents in our area are doing, i.e. how they are voting. as you'll also see at the bottom of the story, we say Source: Santa Clara County Registrar of Voters. We've ben updating the numbers as they come in. Another update is due tomorrow.

That’s democracy. If that's the way the majority of the 'people' vote then that's what the 'people' get. It's not like anybody is taking your vote away. When one party loses it simply means that they didn't sell their idea well enough to the people. If you believe your vote does not count and don't vote as a result then you are only creating a self fulfilled prophecy. Its not the other party's fault that you didn't vote. In Wisconsin Dems wanted Walker recalled. They’ve been a blue state since 1984. What happened? Republicans had higher numbers & 37% of union houses voted for Walker. Look what happened w/Gray Davis. We recalled him & elected Arnold Schwarzenegger, a Republican. Then again its not too surprising when you look at California political history. Since 1900 Republicans held the Governors mansion 15-5 (91years-21). As for the State legislature Republicans had total control from 1899-1937, partial control from 1937-1942, full control again from 1943-1956. That said 51 of the past 112 years were Republican controlled rule. Presidential elections Republicans were voted 23 out of 40 elections. Dems were voted for 16 times. Look at California on a county level. Most of the the state is red except for the coastal counties. So to say your vote doesn't count is a cop out given the history of our state. Trends change. Republicans had their time, Dems are having theirs right now and that could easily swing back thanks to our two party system. In other words...VOTE!

Assemblyman Bob Wieckowski is a vocal supporter of medical marijuana & is in favor of legalization. Milpitas Vice-Mayor Pete McHugh has been a leader in the obstruction of our right to "safe & legal access" to medical marijuana by banning dispensaries. Hard to believe a guy named "Primo" would disregard the wishes of the majority of his neighbors when the issue is marijuana. Voters across America are rejecting candidates who put their anti-marijuana biases before the needs of their constituents. The latest polling shows 56% of Americans now favor legalization & politicians on the wrong side of this issue are increasingly joining the unemployment line. The voters are speaking,are you listening ? Read what former judges & police officers have to say on the LEAP (Law Enforcement Against Prohibition) website. Or read NY Supreme Court Justice Gustin Reichbach's Op-Ed "A Judge's Plea for Pot" in the May 16th NY Times ! For up to the minute news "Toke of the Town" is the best website for timely marijuana information. Educate,legislate,litigate & berate until victory is ours !
