Measure B with solid lead

Another 8,520 votes have been counted, and the results are:
Yes - 414,308 (66.78%)
No - 206,098 (33.22%)
The margin is now 2,112. Or rather, if 705 additional "No" votes had been registered from the current total, the measure would not pass.

9,800 votes remained to be counted as of Wednesday evening, so this new total may be "final" with a number of ballots thrown out. Opponents have indicated they may demand a recount, one that they would have to pay for.
