Election update 11 AM

Pleased to report that two issues your editor has been involved with from the start did well last night.  Ranked choice voting, a movement that in the 1990s began seriously with a meeting in your editor's living room, got its first statewide approval - in Maine. And DC statehood was overwhelmingly approved by DC voters. An article by your editor about how DC could become  a state without a constitutional amendment helped to launch the movement for it a few months later.

Democrat Paul Penzone has ended controversial Arizona lawman Joe Arpaio's 24-year tenure as the sheriff of Maricopa County.

Nevada Democrat and former state attorney general  Catherine Cortez Masto is now the country's first latina senator.
