With 100% of the East Lansing Clinton County votes counted, and 94% of East Lansing Ingham County precinct's (16 of 17) votes counted, the parking lot sale ballot initiative appears too close to call. Note that this means 94% of precincts have reported votes, and NOT that 94% of the votes have been counted.
The vote count at this point is 5,163 Yes (57%) and 3,891 No (43%). A 60% Yes vote is required for the initiative to pass.
A more detailed article will be published shortly. ELi is awaiting word from the City Clerk with a final vote tally.
