With all precincts reporting, Huntington Beach’s Measure O is losing, with 54.7 percent voting against and 45.3 percent voting for. Some absentee ballots remained outstanding Thursday morning, but the No’s had a more than 4,000-vote lead.
A previous voter-approved initiative secured 15 percent of the city’s general fund for infrastructure. Measure O would would redefine the fund to, among other things, exclude debt service payments.
