Charter-schools measure still too close to call

Initiative 1240, the statewide measure to approve charter schools, was still too close to call Friday night.

It was leading  50.8 to 49.2 percent, down a little from Thursday, when it had a full two-point lead

The measure continued to trail in King County, with 51.5 percent of voters against, but was still ahead in Snohomish and Pierce counties.

Supporters said they don’t see how the measure could fail, but they have yet to declare victory, and opponents have not conceded.
