KRAI News for Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2019

Voting results are in. They are unofficial, but we can give you a good idea of what passed since Moffat County is reporting 99 percent of ballots have been counted.

Totals show Measure 2A in Craig with a slight lead. That’s the sales tax of no more than 4 percent on the sale of marijuana.

Measure 2B has passed which allows the city of Craig retail sales of marijuana and marijuana products in marijuana retail stores starting February 1 of next year.

Measure 2C also has received approval from voters. That’s the issue of whether the City of Craig should allow retail marijuana cultivation businesses, retail marijuana manufacturing businesses, retail marijuana test facilities, and retail marijuana off-premises storage businesses, also starting Feb. 1 of 2020.

Full results are being reported by the Craig Press and on the Colorado Secretary of State’s website. https://results.enr.clarityelections.com/CO/Moffat/97185/web/#/summary

Of the 9,142 registered voters in Moffat County, there were 4,083 ballots cast, which is 44.66 percent.
