The third round of results for Tuesday’s Primary Election was released by King County Elections at 4:02 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 3, and it looks like the standings remain the same.

So far the voter turnout is 24.21%.

The top two vote-getters for each non-partisan position will move onto the ballot for the Nov. 7 General Election.

NOTES:

  • The biggest lead belongs to incumbent Debi Wagner, who is ahead of newcomer Jimmy Matta for Position No. 3 by 1,509 votes.
  • The closest race is currently for Position No. 7, where Krystal Marx leads Patty Janssen by 105 votes.
  • Final results will be certified on Aug. 15, 2017.
  • The B-Town Blog will be holding at least one Candidate Forum in Sept. or Oct. – stay tuned for details!
