Washington GMO labelling initiative set to lose

Voters in the US state of Washington appear to have rejected proposal I-522, which would require labelling of some foods derived from genetically modified crops. Early returns show the opposition trailing on 45%, with nearly 1 million votes counted by state officials. As of November 6th, the Washington Secretary of State's tally had reported 536,272 individuals had voted against the ballot initiative, with 442,127 voting in favour. The final results, however, might not be known for some time and supporters of the measure are refusing to concede defeat. Washington requires all voters to mail in their ballots, so it could be several weeks before all the votes are counted.
