Susan Chang holds 75%
of the primary vote
By Evan Smith

Shoreline City Council candidate Susan Chang continued her big lead in results from the Tuesday, August 1 primary election, as her portion of votes in a three-way race for an open council position reached 74.86 percent in returns reported through Friday afternoon, August 4.

Chang’s probable general-election opponent, Carolyn Ahlgreen, holds 14.18 percent. Bergith Kayyali trails with 10.25 percent of the vote.

Shoreline voter turnout stands at 27.39 percent, compared to 31.56 percent for all of King County, a turnout enhanced by the 36.85 percent in the City of Seattle, where 21 candidates ran for mayor.

County elections officials plan to post updated results Monday at 4:30pm and each weekday afternoon through final certification of results August 15.

The primary results will put Chang and Ahlgreen on the November 7 general-election ballot, where they will face off for the position that Councilwoman Shari Winstead is giving up.

Three other Shoreline council positions will appear only on the November ballot because they have only one or two candidates each.
