Nationwide ‘First Look’ at November 2016 Library Elections

EveryLibrary tracked 74 ballot measures for libraries on Election Day, November 8, 2016. As of this writing, all results are preliminary and unofficial. This “first look” shows that 54 library measures passed, 15 failed, and several are either ‘too close to call’ or need interpretation and analysis of their impact before reporting. We are still compiling results from news organizations and Election Offices around the country. If you know of a ballot measure we are missing, or have more current results available, please email us at info@everylibrary.org.
