Sherril Huff, current King County Elections Director, holds a more than 2-to-1 lead over former King County Councilman David Irons in the vote for Elections Director, which was held Tuesday.
This special election was held after voters decided last November to choose an Elections Director, who previously had been appointed directly by King County Executive Ron Sims.
As of late this afternoon, Huff had 96,035 votes, or 45 percent of the total, while Irons had 40,884 votes for 19 percent.
And get this Ã¢â‚¬â€œ this job pays $146,000 per year.
Not a bad gig during this economy, huh?
