Dispensary ban narrowly defeated, but results are unofficial

marijuana gifting imageGrants Pass, Ore. — A measure to uphold a ban on marijuana dispensaries in Grants Pass was narrowly defeated Tuesday, but the results are unofficial at this point.

Fewer than 300 votes currently separate the no votes from the yes on measure 17-73. That means the race could tighten as lingering ballots are still counted.

“It’s possible that we might have 300 more ballots to be scanned in,” Josephine County Clerk Trisha Myers, “these are ballots that are county wide so it’s unknown as to how many of these ballots are for the city of Grants Pass which is in regards to the measure 17-73.”

Ballots that weren’t signed or didn’t have a signature match on file, as well as ballots that were dropped off in other counties still need to be counted. Those changes must be completed by November 22nd, so that official results can be released on the 28th.
