How Did Midtown Vote on the Charter School Amendment?
The controversial ballot measure passed on Tuesday with 58.5 percent of Georgia voters supporting the constitutional amendment giving the state final authority on approving charter schools, some of which could be operated privately.
Georgia voters gave the state more authority over charter schools this past week in supporting Amendment 1 on Election Day.
In Fulton County, there were 244,714 votes cast for and 127,281 votes cast against the amendment. Fill in your precinct code or name to see how your Midtown precinct voted.
After several days delay, Fulton County's final, certified election results were updated on the Fulton county website on Saturday and are attached with this story.
Before the election, opponents filed a lawsuit to prevent the amendment from taking effect, arguing that the ballot language misled voters about the proposal's intentions.
