Incumbent Democratic State Rep. Ruth Kagi kept a majority of the primary election vote in the last Tuesday night count, with Republican Gary Gagliardi keeping a firm hold on the second-place spot to be her general-election opponent.

Results from both King and Snohomish counties showed Kagi with more than 55 percent of the vote to less than 36 percent for a Gagliardi and slightly more than 8 percent for Stan Lippmann, who ran as a Democrat despite having used several other party labels in past runs for various offices.

The numbers reflect King County votes received by Monday morning and Snohomish County votes received by Monday afternoon.

The King County vote came from a countywide turnout of 22.8 percent, compared to the projected 45 percent. King County votes in the 32nd District include those from Shoreline, Lake Forest Park, Kenmore and the Finn Hill area near Kirkland.

Snohomish County reported a countywide turnout as of Tuesday of 23 percent, compared to a projected 41 percent. Snohomish County results include ballots from Woodway, south Edmonds and unincorporated Esperance.

King County plans to update its vote count at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Snohomish County at 5 p.m. Wednesday.
