Mapping the vote: County Prop 1 for two more commissioners

Spokane County voters definitely don't want to add two more commissioners to the county board. But when the votes for or against County Proposition 1 are tallied in each precinct, the margins weren't very large on either side.

As the map shows, in no precinct is the margin more than 76 votes, suggesting the county as a whole is saying "no", but maybe not "HELL NO!"

That's a bit of a contrast to Spokane City Proposition 1, the Worker Bill of Rights, which failed by huge margins in some city precincts.
