Tomorrow’s the deadline to drop off your ballot for the 2009 Municipal Election. We should have results by tomorrow evening, and it will be interesting to see whether ballot issues 2C and 300 pass or fail. There’s been a couple of formal and informal polls done with mixed results. Here’s the two that I’ve found:
There’s an informal poll that was done via the Gazette website. It’s about as unscientific a method as it can get, but as it stands currently, it shows Issue 2C passing just barely. The Gazette notes that Mayor Rivera gave it a 50/50 chance of passing.
Then, a more formal survey done by the Colorado Springs Independent shows Issue 2C as failing with about 51.9% of the vote. 29.3 were in favor of Issue 2C, and 18.8% were unsure or gave no answer. The poll showed Issue 300 pretty split, with 33.8% against, 28.9% for, and 29.9% unsure. Four hundred likely voters were included in this survey, which was commissioned by the Independent and conducted by Luce Research.
We’ll post official results here as soon as they’re out. If you haven’t yet mailed your ballot, it’s too late to mail, but there are several locations that you can drop them off.
