Election returns 4pm - Shoreline, School Board, Lake Forest Park

Friday, November 8, 2019

Shoreline's Prop 1 for a Recreation and Aquatics Center
has a majority of the votes, but needed a Supermajority.
It is failing.

By Diane Hettrick

King county elections received so many last-minute ballots that they are going to report returns twice on Friday.

These are from the 4pm returns - but they are conclusive enough for local races that 8:30pm returns won't tell us much that's new.

Shoreline Council

The 4pm returns show incumbent Deputy Mayor Doris McConnell surging ahead of challenger David Chen 280 votes. With 18,364 ballots counted, she has 51% of the vote.

Keith Scully and Betsy Robertson have been reelected.

Shoreline Prop 1

Prop 1 for the Recreation and Aquatics Center has failed. There are more people voting Yes than No but the votes are staying in virtually the same proportion, so the percentage of Yes votes doesn't change. It needs to have a 60% supermajority but it has gone up only to 53.79%.

Shoreline School Board

With half of the ballots counted, Meghan Jerrigan has 57% of the vote against incumbent Mike Jacobs. This means that the school board will have three brand new members, with Rebeca Rivera and Sara Betnel also elected.

Lake Forest Park City Council

Lorri Bodi leads Deputy Mayor Catherine Stanford with 56% of the votes.

Half of the votes have been counted for LFP - 5721. There are 10,164 registered voters in Lake Forest Park and it looks like the turnout may hit an all time high.

Incumbents Tom French and Phillippa Kassover have been reelected.

The next returns will be released at 8:30pm, then not again until Tuesday, November 12.

Update: no significant changes in 8:30pm release.
