The second round of results are in for Tuesday’s (Aug. 3, 2021) Primary Election, and these returns for the Burien City Council race show some new trends:

    • Mark Dorsey – a candidate who was rumored (perhaps twice) to have dropped out of the race, now has more votes than incumbent Jimmy Matta for Position No. 3: 2,321 to 2,276, up 45 over Matta, after trailing by 16 yesterday.
    • Martin Barrett’s lead over Hugo Garcia for Position No. 1 has increased from 631 to 754 votes.
