Election Night local results for candidates on the ballot

Tuesday, November 6, 2018

For those of you who are so sick of electioneering that you have been watching reruns and refusing to watch the news -

Here are the national results:
  • Republicans keep the Senate, which means that the President is safe from impeachment
  • Democrats take the House which means that all those investigations into corruption can move forward.
For local results, here are the most interesting races:

Shoreline District Court Judge: For the open seat on the court, Joe Campagna has 78% of the first vote count. Incumbent Marcine Anderson was uncontested for the other position.

State Senate - 32nd District
Challenger Jesse Salomon has trounced incumbent Senator Maralyn Chase in initial returns, taking 68.9% of the vote.

Other state legislative races

Not much in the way of fireworks in the other local legislative races, due to the lopsided results in the primary.

In the 46th District (Lake Forest Park, Kenmore, NE Seattle) all three legislators have won their elections and will be returning to Olympia: Sen. David Frockt, Rep. Gerry Pollet, Rep. Javier Valdez.

In the 32nd District (Shoreline, parts of NW Seattle, south Snohomish County), incumbent Cindy Ryu will be joined in the House by newcomer Lauren Davis.

Judicial

In other news, Supreme Court Justice Steve Gonzalez, who had high ratings from five bar associations, has twice the number of votes as his challenger, Nathan Choi, who refused to cooperate with the King County Bar Association's endorsement panel.

U.S. Congressional races

Senator Maria Cantwell, Congressional District 1 Rep. Suzan DelBene, and Congressional District 7 Rep. Pramila Jayapal are all ahead of their opponents. Cantwell and DelBene each have 58% of the vote and Jayapal has 83%.

Not our district, but dominating the airways for the past month, Kim Schrier is ahead of Dino Rossi 53 to 47% in the 8th Congressional District.

Voter turnout

Statewide: There are 4,361,942 registered voters in the state of Washington. 1,973,342 ballots have been turned in as of 9pm. The Secretary of State estimates that 546,711 ballots are on hand and not yet counted. The statewide voter turnout is 45.24%. This will change as more ballots come in.
