Local voters opposed the proposed State income tax on the November ballot, but nowhere nearly as overwhelmingly as the State as a whole.
Voters in the King County part of the 32nd Legislative District – Shoreline, Lake Forest Park, Kenmore and the Finn Hill area near Kirkland – gave Initiative 1098 45.61 percent of their votes, compared to 35.85 percent statewide.
The measure would have imposed an income tax on Washington's highest earners.
The secretary of state’s office released statewide results by legislative district Tuesday.
