New evidence of Prop 37 voting fraud?

| | December 11, 2012
It seems there were significant “irregularities” in the vote totals for Proposition 37, the ballot initiative to label genetically engineered foods, that could not be explained by random coincidence.

 
On election day, November 6, Proposition 37 – the ballot initiative for mandatory labeling of food with GMO content – failed by a narrow margin. With 4,277,985 people voting “yes” (47.9%) and 4,835,045 people voting “no” (53.1%), it was very close.

 

Since then, some rumors have been going around about possible election fraud. Food Democracy Now!, one of the groups involved in Prop 37 has been closely monitoring the results as they came in, and they hadn’t seen any credible reports of voting irregularities, that is up until now.
