Changes following 2nd count of local Election ballots

Following the second count of ballots in the General Election, a race tightened while another switched the leader entirely.

The race for Grays Harbor Superior Court Judge has changed, with David Mistachkin now leading appointed Judge Ray Kahler. Mistachkin has a gone from a 20 point deficit on Election Night to now leading by 241 votes. Mistachkin holds 50.55% of the vote with 11,034 votes to Kahler’s 49.45% and 10,793.

In the 19th District Representative race, a lead by Jim Walsh has shrunk as challenger Erin Frasier now trails by only 298 votes. Walsh leads with 23,242 and 50.32% to Frasier at 22,944 and 49.68%. On Election Night, Walsh was leading by 552.

For Grays Harbor County Auditor, Joe MacLean continues to lead Chris Thomas by approximately 300 votes, strengthening his lead slightly to 50.7%. MacLean garnered 12,273 to Thomas and 11,936.

Kimberly Foster has also increased her lead, now showing a 51.17% lead over Janice Louthan. Foster showed 11,929 votes to Louthan at 11,383.

In Pacific County, Hawk Runyon will return to a Commissioner seat, although a different kind of Commissioner. Runyon leads after updated results by 57.14% and 4,241 votes for Pacific County Commissioner over Todd Stephens and 3,181 votes for 42.86%.  Runyon is a former Raymond Mayor and City Commissioner.

Pacific County Sheriff Scott Johnson is now trailing his challenger by over 600 votes after early numbers, with Robin Souvenir holding a 53.75% lead.

Mark McClain will retain his role as Pacific County Prosecutor, leading by a nearly 20% over challenger Pam Nogueira Maneman.

In the Pacific County PUD race, Debbie Oakes is leading Don Pape for the Commissioner role.

Voters in Washington are rejecting a carbon fee for the state, although a ban on food taxes, increased firearm regulation, and a measure that would bring additional training and oversight to police are all passing by larger margins.

While the population overall voted for the gun and police measures, local voters joined the vast majority of the state outside Puget Sound in opposing the additional regulations.

Also in contrast, Grays Harbor leaned Republican in many races against incumbents, with Mike Chapman, Steve Tharinger, and Maria Cantwell trailing locally and leading throughout the districts. Both Chapman and Tharinger won locally in 2016.

Over 60% of voters turned out in both Grays Harbor and Pacific Counties according to the new figures. As of Election night, only 51.19% in Grays Harbor and 50.68% in Pacific County had been counted.

25,737 ballots were counted as of Wednesday afternoon, with more votes set to be tabulated this week and the election certified on November 27th.
