Two different measures to legalize sports betting in California have both been defeated.
While vote counting is ongoing, the Associated Press has already called both races, with the proposals set to be defeated.
The failures of both the tribal-backed Proposition 26 and commercial-supported Proposition 27 leaves unclear the future of sports betting in California, which is the most populous state in the US.
As of 5am ET, Proposition 27 stands at 16.4% for and 83.6% opposed with 38% of votes counted so far. This compares with its rival ballot measure, which is behind 70.7% to 29.3%, also with 38% of votes counted according to data supplied by the New York Times.
