With 99% of counties reporting statewide, all but one of the Texas state constitutional amendments appear to have won voter approval in the Nov. 5 election. Only Proposition No. 1, which would allow a person to hold more than one office as municipal judge at the same time, has failed by a considerable margin. Proposition No. 9, which would exempt precious metals from ad valorem taxation if held in a precious metal repository, appears to have won by a narrow margin of about 3%. Proposition No. 10, which would allow the transfer of a law enforcement animal to a qualified caretaker in certain circumstances, passed by the largest margin.
