Bridge Toll Vote Results

By November 14, 2012

Follow me on:

In case you missed it, the 20-year addition of the bridge toll to the New Orleans Crescent City Connection vote has apparently narrowly passed - by just 16 votes - although there may be a recount or challenge of the tally,  perhaps especially the hand-counted votes.  The election results were released after counting delayed mail-in military votes  due to the Veteran's Day Holiday.

The reported final vote count:  154,389 for the toll and 154,373 against the toll. The toll extension won in Orleans Parish and lost in Jefferson and Plaquemines Parishes.
