Every vote counts for U

November 14, 2008

The fact that ballots are still being tallied more than a week after Election Day reveals how many people turned out to exercise their right of contributing to free government. And in Ventura County, it means voters wait with bated breath to see who officially wins some very contentious, and close, political races.

None so more evident is Measure U, the proposal to usher in an official, unified school district to Camarillo.

Talk about a razor sharp, neck-and-neck race. As of Wednesday afternoon, the measure was losing by just over a 1,000-vote margin. Officially, the “no” side is leading with 38,551 votes; the “yes” side, 37,513.

No matter what happens with Measure U, it goes to show that, indeed, every vote counts.
