Election update as of Wednesday

Thursday, August 16, 2018

Just a few hundred ballots remain to be counted - and in the 32nd Legislative District race for state senator, the vote totals for Jesse Salomon continue to slowly rise over Maralyn Chase.

Salomon, who is Deputy Mayor of Shoreline, currently leads incumbent state senator Maralyn Chase by 174 votes.

The county results in the election are very different. Chase, who lives in Edmonds, has the lead in Snohomish county - 6499 votes to Salomon's 4424 - a lead of 2075.

King county is the opposite. There Salomon has 10,019 votes to Chase's 7770 - a lead of 2249.

Republican James Wood came in third, with total 9090 votes, so Salomon and Chase will meet again in the general election. Wood, who is from Snohomish county, did much better there than in King county.

Rep. Cindy Ryu has handily won reelection. She will meet Diodato (Dio) Boucsieguez in the fall.

In the three way race for Rep. Ruth Kagi's seat, Lauren Davis is far ahead of the competition, with 52% of the vote. 32nd-endorsed candidate and former Shoreline Mayor Chris Roberts is coming in third. It appears that Davis will meet Republican Frank Deisler in the general election.

In the 46th District, which is wholly in King county, Sen. David Frockt, Rep. Javier Valdez, and Rep. Gerry Pollet have won reelection with over 82% of the vote each.

For the U.S. House of Representatives, Pramilia Jayapal and Suzan DelBene have won their elections.

For U.S. Senate, Maria Cantwell will meet Susan Hutchison in the November election. In a field of 29 candidates, Cantwell took 55% of the vote and Hutchison took 24%.

The King county Automated Fingerprint Identification System Services passed with 54%.

King county has 314 ballots left to count for the entire county. They report that turnout for the county was 42.47%.

Snohomish county has 3 ballots left to county for the entire county. They report a voter turnout of 36.96%.

The results of the primary election will be certified on Tuesday, August 21.

That would be Susan Hutchison, not Hutchinson...

Thank you Terry O - I've corrected the story.
