PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - An Oregon ballot measure that would require labels for genetically engineered foods may be heading for an automatic recount.
The measure was rejected, but results released Thursday by Multnomah County pushed the margin of defeat to a mere 0.1 percent. That's inside the 0.2 percent threshold that triggers an automatic recount.
Out of 1.5 million ballots counted, fewer than 1,500 votes separate the two sides in Measure 92.
