LANSING, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - As of Wednesday morning, it's clear all six statewide ballot proposals were crushed, most by large margins.
The closest call was Proposal 1. With most precincts reporting, Prop 1, the Emergency Manager Law failed 52- to 48-percent. The “no” vote means the law passed in 2011 will be repealed.
Despite millions of dollars poured into this year’s election, all five attempts to amend the state constitution were also defeated.
The largest margin was Proposal 5, with 69-percent voting “no.”
According to Michigan Campaign Finance Network, spending on the ballot initiatives broke records in the state, with ballot committees raising $141.4 million dollars. The total was 31-percent more than spending in 2010 for all of Michigan's state campaigns, including the race for governor.
Although it could be days or even weeks before the final ballot is counted, it's unlikely any of the results will change.
