Shoreline City Council candidate Shari Tracey continued to hold her lead over incumbent Councilwoman Cindy Ryu in the Monday vote count, but her lead continued to slip.
Tracey’s lead of 218 votes was down from the 290-vote lead she had Friday.
Still, Ryu would have to gain more than 23 votes per day for the next nine days to take the lead.
With the current number of votes, Ryu would need to cut the lead to 80 votes to force a recount. That would take a gain of 138 votes – 15.3 per day.
The new votes coming in tend to be foreign votes – probably votes that would favor incumbent Ryu, but we can expect fewer to arrive each day.
Tracey has 50.5 percent of the vote to 49.1 percent for Ryu.
