Local voters embraced Proposition 2012-4 by a wide margin in the Nov. 6 election, as the citizen-led initiative banning production of GMOs captured 61 percent of votes tallied Tuesday’s initial election results.

With 8,877 votes counted, “Yes” votes outnumbered “No” votes by 5,183 to 3,329.

Here’s a link to a recent opinion piece about the GMO by Ken & Kathryn Akopiantz, primary sponsors of the initiative.
