Incumbent 46th District Democratic State Rep. Gerry Pollet has 86.3 percent of the votes cast in his race against Republican Eric J. Brown, who has 13.5 percent. The other 46th District Democratic incumbent, State Rep. Javier Valdez has 83.6 percent of the vote to 16.2 percent for Republican Beth Daranciang.

In the 32nd Legislative District, incumbent Democratic State Rep. Lauren Davis has 73.0 percent to 15.9 percent for non-partisan candidate Tamra Smilanich and 9.5 percent for Democrat Gray Petersen. The other 32nd District incumbent Democrat, State Rep. Cindy Ryu, holds 64.2 percent to fellow Democrat Shirley Sutton’s 23.9 percent and 9.7 percent for a third Democrat, Keith Smith.

The top two candidates in each race qualify for the Nov. 3 general election.
