Local voter turnout continues to run ahead of county and state averages

Saturday, November 24, 2012


Local voter turnout continued to run ahead of King County and statewide averages in ballot-return statistics released Wednesday, Nov. 21.

Shoreline City voters had a ballot-return rate of 82.33 percent, slightly ahead of the countywide rate of 82.21 percent as ballots continued to trickle in Wednesday.

Voters in the 46th Legislative District, which includes Lake Forest Park, Kenmore and northeast Seattle, had a return rate of 85.42 percent, compared to the state average of 80.91 percent.

Ballots still coming in are either those returned to voters for signature verification or those coming from voters living, traveling, studying or serving in the military overseas.

King County had 1,800 uncounted ballots on hand Wednesday. The County will continue to count ballots through certification of County election results Tuesday, Nov. 27.
