Mapping the vote: Final count on I-502

A funny thing happened on the way to Spokane County supporting Initiative 502, which legalizes marijuana for private use by adults.

Some precincts, particularly those in the city of Spokane, really liked it. And by that we mean by big margins. Other precincts, as the map shows, really did not.

There's one precinct on the map that's particularly interesting. It's Precinct 6500, but is more commonly known as “Fairchild Air Force Base”. That precinct went about 70 percent for Republicans Mitt Romney and Rob McKenna, about 74 percent for U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers and 66.3 percent for Republican Senate candidate Mike Baumgartner. It went 80 percent for the tax limiting I-1183 and 56 percent against Ref. 74, to allow same sex marriage.

So it's a pretty conservative, Republican precinct, no?

On I-502, it turned down legalized marijuana by just 3 votes.
