In a special election that was watched by the nation, Albuquerque voters defeated a proposed late-term abortion ban.

The proposed ban would have made it illegal for a woman to have an abortion after 20 weeks. The election was the first of its kind to be held at the municipal level.

87,296 people cast their votes, with 36,734 casting their votes on Election Day.

With all voting centers reporting, 48,042 (55.26%) voted against the ban and 38,898 (44.74%) voted in favor of the ban.

All numbers are unoffical.
