Really Low Turnout

Notice anything wrong with this bit from a story on Question 2 in the Bangor Daily News Today?

Some of the hard feelings here are due to the defeat of an effort last year to build a tribal racetrack casino on a 700-acre site in Calais.

The Passamaquoddy Tribe’s was narrowly defeated 6,193 to 5,949 statewide. The town of Oxford voted 323-306 against the tribe.

The casino referendum was opposed 6,193 to 5,949 in Oxford County. It lost statewide by almost 12,000 votes, 142,458 to 130,164.
