However, as ballots were counted the day after the election, there has been movement in each of the races and in one case, a new leader
Here are some races that are still too close to decide on a winner:
- 17th legislative district (Vancouver): Still at 51-49%, Republican Lynda Wilson is slowly gaining a lead over incumbent Democrat Monica Stonier. Yesterday’s 525 vote difference is now up to 753.
- 25th legislative district (Puyallup): Also gaining more votes is Republican Melanie Stambaugh. Yesterday, Stambaugh was leading with 1,353 votes. Today, with close to 54% of the votes, Stambaugh is leading incumbent Democrat Dawn Morrell with over 2,000 votes.
- 26th legislative district (Gig Harbor/Port Orchard): Republican Michelle Caldier is still leading in the 26th legislative district. Though she is close to having 50.5% of the votes, she is still ahead of her Democrat opponent, incumbent Larry Seaquist, with 232 votes. This is up from her 78 vote lead from yesterday.
- 28th Legislative District (Lakewood): Yesterday, Republican Paul Wagemann was leading the race with 69 more votes than Democrat Christine Kilduff. Today, Kilduff has received 41 more votes than Wagemann and is now leading the race.
- 35th legislative district (Shelton/Mason County): Democrat incumbent Kathy Haigh had a 223 vote lead over Republican Dan Griffey. While Haigh still holds the lead, the margin of votes is shrinking. What has a 223 vote lead has now become a 110 vote lead.
