Charter-school vote still too close to call

By Seattle Times staff

Initiative 1240, the statewide measure to approve charter schools, was still too close to call Friday night. It was leading 50.8 to 49.2 percent, down a little from Thursday, when it had a full 2 percentage point lead.

The measure continued to trail in King County, with 51.5 percent of voters against, but was still ahead in Snohomish and Pierce counties.

Supporters said they don't see how the measure could fail, but they have yet to declare victory, and opponents have not conceded.
