——- ORIGINAL POST, 8:13 P.M., TUESDAY, NOV. 5 ——- 

Thanks to a very quick turnaround by El Paso County Clerk Wayne Williams and his staff, any Election Day drama around here is already pretty much over.

Unofficial results time-stamped 7:15 p.m. show that in Colorado Springs School District 11, incumbent LuAnn Long and newbies Jim Mason and Linda Mojer will take seats on the board of education. The numbers coming out of the area's largest school district:

Al Loma: 14.10%
Jim Mason: 18.79%
Charlie Bobbitt: 14.99%
LuAnn Long: 21.48%
James Tucker: 13.62%
Linda Mojer: 17.02%

In Academy School District 20, the second-largest area district, it's incumbents Catherine Bullock and Linda Van Matre, along with Larry Norman Borland:

Linda Van Matre: 23.14%
Shannon Mendes: 11.27%
Larry Norman Borland: 23.55%
Andrea Van Nort: 18.21%
Catherine Bullock: 23.84%

In other news, Manitou Springs has again voted overwhelmingly to allow for the sales and taxation of recreational marijuana via Issue 2A:

YES: 66.62%
NO: 33.38%

Manitou also voted to see Nicole Nicoletta replace Matt Carpenter as Ward 3 City Councilor.

Nicole Nicoletta: 66.99%
David Walker: 33.01%

Other results from local races can be found here.

As for the two big state questions, let's just say that El Paso County — which saw 118,432 ballots cast overall — did more than its part in killing Amendment 66, the tax increase for public education. 

YES 25.46%
NO 74.54%

In raw numbers, that's 29,937 for the tax increase, and 87,654 against. Ouch.

But county voters approved implementing taxes on recreational marijuana retail (in other parts of the state, of course, since no sales are allowed here) via Proposition AA, by a nearly 2-to-1 margin.

YES: 62.84%
NO: 37.16%
