As of 9pm on election night, Pramila Jayapal was leading Brady Piñero Walkinshaw to replace Jim McDermott as 7th District Congressional Representative.
Both are Democrats. She had 132,216 votes to his 98,461.
King County has counted 615K ballots and has 200K more to process. They will release the next vote count at 1:30am November 9.
Snohomish County has counted 200K ballots and will count the last 75K during the daytime on Wednesday, and release the numbers at 5pm.
The 7th congressional district crosses the county and city lines. Walkinshaw has a slim lead in Snohomish County, but Jayapal has a large lead in King county.
The 7th Congressional District includes Shoreline, Lake Forest Park Edmonds, Woodway and nearby unincorporated areas, most of Seattle and some of Seattle’s southwest suburbs.
