How many actually supported Measure B?

Editor, Index-Tribune:

Did I read Larry Barnett’s letter correctly (“Wine bars: Here we go again,” Index-Tribune, Jan. 17)?

Did he proclaim that half of Sonoma’s voters supported Measure B? I believe a more accurate accounting would be half of Sonoma’s registered voters voted, and one half of that number, or 25 percent of Sonoma’s registered voters supported Measure B. And if parsed further, registered voters might be 60 percent of the population of Sonoma, so really, how many Sonoman’s supported this failed measure?
