"Ballot Question 300: Longmont Fracking Ban Storms To Victory"

"LONGMONT, Colo. — Longmont's city charter will now ban fracking."

"As of 11 p.m. Tuesday, the ban — Ballot Question 300 — was leading 16,798 votes to 11,544 and had widened its margin of victory with every report, according to the Boulder and Weld county clerk's offices. That gave ban supporters about 59 percent of the vote.

'Are you kidding?' screamed ban supporter Teresa Foster as results came in to a watch party held by Our Health, Our Future, Our Longmont. 'Awesome! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!'"
