Pierce County's Prop. 1 fails by 704 votes
TACOMA, Wash. -- Weeks after Election Day, the tally is finally in.

Pierce County's Proposition 1 has failed by 704 votes, leaving the fate of Pierce Transit's night and weekend services uncertain.

The proposition would have funded Pierce Transit by raising the sales tax 3 cents for every $10 spent.

According to the final results, 100,943 voters rejected the measure while 100,239 approved it.

No recount is scheduled, though the losing side could request one as long as it picks up the $200,000 bill.
