More than 65 percent of voters approved Measure P Wednesday morning. 

Measure P has received about 69 percent of the vote with 95 percent of precincts reporting. 

The “head tax” would replace one that charged most businesses $30 a year and would dock Google about $3.3 million. 

Most of the money will go toward transit projects. 

The tax is scheduled to start in 2020.
