It could be weeks before a ballot measure that would raise the sales tax in Santa Clara County to help pay for a BART extension into Silicon Valley is decided.
Santa Clara County elections officials say Measure B has received 66.3 percent of the vote in favor, but that remains a fraction under the two-thirds required for approval.
The measure would raise the sales tax by one-eighth of a cent to help pay for a BART extension to San Jose.
With about 164,000 absentee and provisional ballots still not counted, election officials say they won't certify the results until Dec. 2.
