Evan Smith: Tracey holds reduced lead over Ryu

         Shoreline City Council candidate Shari Tracey held her lead over incumbent Councilwoman Cindy Ryu in the Friday vote count, but her lead slipped.
          Tracey’s lead of 290 votes was down from the 338-vote lead she had Thursday.
         Still, Ryu would have to gain more than 24 votes per day for the next 12 days to take the lead.
         However, with the current number of votes, Ryu would need to gain only 210 votes – 17.5 per day – to force a recount.
         The new votes coming in tend to be from overseas voters – probably votes that would favor incumbent Ryu, but we can expect fewer to arrive each day.
         Tracey still has almost 51 percent of the vote to 49 percent for Ryu.
