Saturday Election Update

Jeff Wilmot continues to be 14 votes ahead of Craig Carter for Fire District Commissioner.  According to the Secretary of State's office (Washington State), "Mandatory recounts are required if the difference between the two candidates concerned is less than ½ of one percent and less than 2000 votes. "

Since there are only a total of 386 votes cast so far, and since it is a difference of 52% to 48%, there would not be a required mandatory recount.  A candidate can request a recount, but he/she has to pay a fixed cost per vote in order to have it conducted.
