Oregon's primary was on May 20, but it's still too soon to call the result on Measure 53, which seeks to clarify state law regarding seized crime-scene property.
The Secretary of State still showed Measure 53 passing, but barely. With 961,599 votes cast, 481,384 or 50.06 percent had voted "yes" and 480,215 or 49.94 were "no" votes.
On Wednesday, a spokesman for the Secretary of State's office said Measure 53 appeared to be headed for a recount, which kicks in if the difference between the two sides is within one-fifth of 1 percent. For Measure 53, that would mean about 1,923 votes. As of Thursday afternoon, the difference had dwindled to 1,169 votes.
