The Berkeley Daily Gazette reacted with relief to the results of the 1973 election, listing voting totals for each candidate and each proposed measure.  Their endorsed candidates for the school board, Monheimer and Roh, both won seats and three of four available city council seats went to moderate Democrats rather than members of the more radical April Coalition.

The failure of Amendment M a few months earlier, in November of 1972, prevented secondary, runoff elections in Berkeley, but they are shown to be occurring in Oakland: “Mayor of Oakland Forced to a Runoff.” (Runoff elections take the two candidates who earned the most votes in the initial election and pit them against each other directly. This process has been proven to be less favorable to minority and women candidates, who often have a more difficult time organizing a broad-based coalition of support than white men.)
