Final election result: Proposition 112 defeated

From the website of the Arizona Secretary of State -
The statewide recount of Proposition 112 has been successfully completed, with the results certified today by Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Robert Oberbillig.


Those results confirm the defeat of Prop 112, which would have moved up by 60 days the deadline for citizens’ initiative campaigns to submit signature petitions to qualify for the ballot.
The official court filing is here.

The final margin was 194 votes out of 1,585,522 votes cast in the race, or slightly more than 1/100th of 1 percent of the total (0.0122%). 

That's the definition of close.

I say yea! The harder it is to get a proposition on the ballot the easier it is for the government to turn a deaf ear to America.

Thane,

This is something we agree on. Prop 112 was nothing more than a legislative move to limit public access to its ballot.
