Primary election

No changes with updated tallies; final count on 8/18

 

August 13, 2020



Updated vote tallies late last week for Washington's primary elections produced no changes in results for local, regional or state wide races.

In primary elections, the candidates with the top two vote counts advance to the general election.

Also, in races for seats on a county commission, only voters in the commissioner district vote for the candidates, with all voters in a county voting on the races in the general election.

Wahkiakum County had two races on the ballot, both for county commissioner, and both with only two candidates.

In District 1, Puget Island and South Cathlamet precincts, challenger Lee Tischer led incumbent Mike Backman 429-237. Both ran as Independents.

In District 2, Elochoman, North Cathlamet, Rosedale and Columbia precincts, incumbent Dan Cothren led challenger Tim Lawry 506-284. Cothren ran as an Independent; Lawry listed no party preference.

Pacific County also had two county commission elections.

In the election for District 1, Republican Lisa Olsen led Democrat Darrell Moudry 1,496-1,178. In the election for District 2, Democrat Frank Wolfe came out on top with 1,582 votes; Libertarian Dan Driscoll received 1,483, and Independent Jon Lind 641.

In other elections, incumbent State Senator Dean Takko (D) won his three-person race with 44.58% of the vote; Jeff Wilson (R) was second with 37.81% and Wes Cormier (R) had 17.49 percent.

In the race for state representative, position 1, incumbent Jim Walsh (R) led with 57.61%; Democrats Marianna Everson and Clint Bryson finished with 22.3% and 20.0%, respectively.

In the race for state representative, position 2, Cathlamet resident Joel McEntire (R) led incumbent Brian Blake (D) 53.28% to 46.56%,

Wahkiakum County has 3,311 registered voters; as of Tuesday, election officials counted 2,083 ballots, a 62.91% turnout, fourth highest in the state after Garfield, Ferry and Lincoln counties.

Voter turnout in Pacific County was 9,490 of 15,578 voters, 57.01%, ninth highest in the state.

Final count and election certification will occur on August 18.
