The first returns from the Mountlake Terrace Proposition 1 vote show the ballot measure receiving support from more than half of city voters, but nowhere near the necessary 60-percent approval mark necessary for passage.
Of the 3,693 ballots counted as of Tuesday, 53.18 percent (1,964 votes) were for Prop 1; 46.82 percent (1,729 votes) were No votes.
With more ballots still to be counted, the total No total votes of 1,729 is already higher than the number of people who voted against the same proposition the last time it was before voters in August 2012. The $25-million measure was scaled back from a $37.5 million proposal in November 2010.
The Snohomish County Election Division plans on announcing another round of ballot tabulations late Wednesday afternoon.
