Democratic State Rep. Maralyn Chase had nearly 48 percent of the votes for 32nd District State Senate in returns announced Friday.

The votes include King County returns released Friday and Snohomish County returns released Thursday.

Both counties will certify results Wednesday, with the Secretary of State certifying results on Tuesday, September 7.

Maralyn Chase (D)    14,892       47.67 %
David Baker (R)        12,446       39.84 %
Patty Butler (D)           3,900       12.48 %
