Last night was a historic night ending perhaps the most aggressive election cycle ever. For the purpose of this blog post, I’m going to ignore the presidential election for my own sanity, and focus on the outcomes of Massachusetts’s four ballot questions.
Question 1 would allow Massachusetts would allow the gaming commission to issue another slots parlor license. MA residents voted against the measure 60.9% to 39.1%.
Question 2 would allow Massachusetts to expand the charter school cap by 12 schools. MA residents voted against the measure 62.1% to 37.9%.
Question 3 would prohibit certain forms of farm animal containment. MA residents voted for the measure, 77% to 22.3%.
Question 4 would legalize marijuana for individuals 21 and older. MA residents voted for the measure 53.5% to 46.5%.
