Voters approve supermajority requirement

The Spokane City Council must approve tax increases with supermajority votes. Most of the remaining ballots in Tuesday’s special election were counted Wednesday, and support for supermajority Proposition 2 increased, making a reversal of the close lead it had after Tuesday’s count impossible. The proposal captured 51 percent support and leads by more than 800 votes. Spokane County Elections Manager Mike McLaughlin said there will be only a few hundred votes left to tally when the next count is held on Feb. 25.
