“The vote count for the tobacco tax on last weekâ€™s primary ballot narrowed again Tuesday as elections officials across California tallied hundreds of thousands of uncounted ballots.
“The measure, known as Proposition 29, was losing by just over 33,200, a gap that narrowed from 63,000 on election night, state election figures show.
“More than 4.5 million ballots already have been counted across the state. The Secretary of Stateâ€™s office estimates that, as of Monday evening, 777,000 ballots remain uncounted. Shortly after the primary, there were more than a million uncounted ballots statewide.”

Count those votes! I hope this nail-biter is as happy as the Attorney General nail-biter two years ago.
