Friedman wins Mayor and Olson, Sinwell likely to win council

The second round of vote counting has been published by King County Elections and the results from Election Night have not changed much. 

Steve Friedman ran unopposed, winning 95% of the vote.

In Council Position 2, Councilmember Ashley Eckel faced Steve Sinwell. Sinwell is leading with nearly 62% of the vote.

In Council Position 4, Planning Commissioner Ryan Olson faced Mark Kroese. Olson is leading with nearly 58% of the vote.

Given the vote spread, it is unlikely that those currently behind will be able to overtake their opponents as more votes are counted.
