RECOUNT: Prop. 112 Recount Will Start Post-Thanksgiving

As reported in the Republic this a.m., Recorder's Offices around the state will begin recounting the votes on Proposition 112.  While most (bloodshot) eyes were (un)focused on the Prop. 203 nail-biter, Prop. 112 remained closer for most of the post-election counting.

Prop. 112 will move up the deadline for filing petitions for ballot initiatives, from July 1 to May 1. (Interesting trivia: Prop. 203 - the only measure to get on the ballot through the citizen petition process - actually filed their signatures on April 29 and would NOT have been effected by the earlier date.)

Some valid questions raised in the comments to the Republic article.  I am seeking answers, and will let you know when I get them.
