Voters reject trust land swaps for military bases

Arizona voters have rejected a measure that would have allowed sales or swaps of state trust land to help protect military bases or ranges.

Proposition 110 lost by just 9,275 votes in unofficial final results released on Saturday.

A second proposition was ahead by just 123 votes on Saturday, a margin that will trigger an automatic recount if it stands. State law requires recounts if fewer than 200 votes separate statewide measures or candidates.

Proposition 112 extends the filing deadline for citizen’s initiative petitions from four to six months before Election Day.

Both measures had been too close to call since Election Day.

Maricopa was the last county to complete its vote counts, finishing about 11,800 provisional and early ballots on Saturday.
