If Navarre ran the state, election results would be … exactly the same. Navarre’s six precincts voted similarly to the rest of the county and matched almost every election result.
The countywide results in favor of medical marijuana topped out at 54.93 percent. Statewide results were slightly higher at 57.62 percent. Navarre topped those numbers with 60.47 percent of ballots in favor of the amendment. However, the amendment needed 66 percent to pass.
Navarre was also in line with the county’s decisive “no” to a one-cent sales tax to fund a new courthouse. However, more than 66 percent of Navarre voters were against the tax while only 55.86 percent of voters county wide were against the tax. And Navarre was even more adamantly against the individual locations, especially Pea Ridge – where nearly 93 percent of voters said no – compared to 77.85 percent of voters county wide.
