GMO label backers lose another round in court…bad signature ballots still don’t count

Yachats voters against GMO's

Yachats voters against GMO’s

The razor thin margin of defeat for those trying to force labels on GMO modified foods lost a big court decision Tuesday evening. A Multnomah County judge ruled that 4,600 ballots from Multnomah County, a county that voted for the measure overwhelmingly, but had bad signatures on their mail-in envelopes, will not be counted.

It’s believed to be the first time that a margin big enough to swing an election came down to the number of “bad signature” votes. GMO labeling supporters are now contemplating another legal action – against the Secretary of State – ostensibly to force her to tally and count those votes which would likely put the pro-label measure over the top.

Here’s more on this very long GMO roller coaster ride in the Oregonian. Click here.
