Today is the deadline for Oregon counties to finish tallying votes and report their final results to the state.

With many counties already done counting, a ballot measure that would require labels for genetically engineered foods appears headed for an automatic recount. Election workers have until 5 p.m. to report.

The latest numbers show Measure 92 trailing by about 1,000 votes.

A recount on the food labeling measure would be the first statewide recount since 2008. It would begin after Secretary of State Kate Brown officially certifies the election results. Brown’s spokesman says that’s likely to happen the first week in December.
