The proposed statehood constitution for the District of Columbia–the most controversial portions of which are likely to be changed by city officials — won strong approval from city voters yesterday.

District voters also overwhelmingly approved an initiative calling for a nuclear weapons freeze. It won by a margin of more than 2 to 1.

According to complete returns from the city’s 137 precincts, 59,300 people were in favor of the constitution compared to 52,177 against.
