Election Results for Nine Transportation Measures

Five of nine transport ballot measures passed.

Five of nine transportation ballot measures passed on Tuesday, now that I-1125 has been defeated. That means for the year, 18 of 23 transportation ballot measure passed. The bulk of the measures are transit-related at the local jurisdiction level.

Perhaps the lesson is that when people clearly understand exactly what they’re being asked to pay, what it will cost them, and precisely what they’ll get for the investment – they will support investing in transportation infrastructure.
