UPDATE (11:30 p.m.) – The latest election night returns released after 11 p.m. continue to show “no” votes leading with 55 percent of the vote. Vote-by-mail ballots are still being received and counted.


 

(8:21 p.m.) – Initial Election Night results released just after 8 p.m. on Tuesday show San Luis Obispo County voters favoring the “No on Measure G” campaign.

Measure G would ban oil companies from digging any new wells in the unincorporated areas of San Luis Obispo County and prevent them from expanding those already in use.

It requires a majority vote to pass. Currently, “no” votes total nearly 57 percent.

If Measure G were to pass, the county expects a slew of lawsuits to follow with residents picking up the tab.
