KLIV Radio and SF Gate are both reporting the passing of measure AA by a slim margin.

First two comnents above were premature, and minor-media "reports" cited by This Just In were irresponsible. The numbers changed further beyond what Shonda Ranson posted, and last night, after the comments above appeared, KCBS quoted the Santa Clara County registrar saying it might be a few days before they finish counting all the vote-by-mail ballots turned in on election day.
