POINT PLEASANT — Mason County voters have passed the constitutional amendment known as the “Roads to Prosperity.”

In today’s special election, Mason County passed the amendment with 1,014 votes for, to 691 votes against. It’s estimated less than one percent of registered voters in Mason County turned out to cast ballots.

Votes were still being tallied across the Mountain State Saturday evening though early numbers were showing the amendment was passing state wide.

Gov. Jim Justice called for the special election and if the amendment passed it was to provide for the improvement and construction of roads in the state by the issuance of bonds not to exceed $1.6 billion.
