Where to Get Your 2012 Transportation Ballot Results

It's Election Day -- finally! The top of the ticket has sucked most of the oxygen out of the room, but don't forget that there are 19 transportation-related measures on ballots across the country. So far this year, pro-transit measures have an 86 percent success rate at the ballot, and there are more transportation amendments being voted on this year than any other in recent memory. Here's Streetsblog's overview of the big ones.

Yonah Freemark took a look at some of the most important local elections here, spotlighting 11 charter amendments and one mayoral race, in Honolulu, which we also profiled. And below, we crib from Jeff Wood's fantastic roundup of where to find election results at his blog, The Overhead Wire. He'll also be live-blogging and tweeting election results.

For a little historical perspective, here's Jeff's coverage of the 2008 results and the 2010 results and, of course, the fantastic wealth of information at the Center For Transportation Excellence's website.

What follows is from The Overhead Wire.

CaliforniaAlameda County is looking for a half cent sales tax increase in order to help AC Transit operate better bus service and build a horrible BART extension to Livermore. Measure B1 results can be found here. 

Los Angeles County needs a 66.6% or higher vote to extend 2008's Measure R so that projects can be fastracked. Measure J results can be found here.

ColoradoEl Paso County is looking to pass a sales tax measure that would benefit rural transit capital projects. Results can be found here.

Hawaii The Mayors Race is likely to decide the direction of rail transit over the next decade. Ben Cayetano wants to halt the project and has his own plan for BRT. Honolulu election results here.
