Chances of Sacramento County Measure A being approved quickly fading with each vote tally

In spite of a well-funded slick advertising campaign riddled with inflated promises and outright false claims, Sacramento County voters and taxpayers are poised to reject Measure A. | 

A much sought $8.5 billion sales tax increase by real estate developers and several elected officials' chances of approval are slipping with each release of votes by Sacramento County Voter Registration and Elections. 

Vote tallies released yesterday afternoon show Sacramento County Tax Measure A being defeated by No votes totaling 133,995 for 54.5 percent. Yes votes, which would have approved the 40-year sales tax increase, have 111,869 votes for 45.5 percent.

With a countywide voter turnout rate of 46 percent, there are 145,452 uncounted ballots. The next vote release is at 4 p.m., November 18. 

Since the first vote tally was released on Tuesday, November 8, the No votes have consistently held an eight to nine percent lead over Yes votes. While Measure A could still win approval, at least 58 percent of the remaining vote would have to be Yes votes.

Statistically, it is difficult for Yes votes to flip the totals, given the trends. Sacramento County voters and taxpayers are not buying what the real estate developers were trying to sell.
