Eye On Olympia

Just because we haven’t written the words “King County” in months…

The King County primary election has been certified and — flashback alert — there’s a recount.

Nope, the governor’s office wasn’t on the ballot. This time, the tallies of two candidates for King County Sheriff were so close that it would normally trigger an automatic manual recount.

Under a rarely-used state law, however, both candidates have agreed to a (quicker and cheaper) alternative: a machine recount of 10 randomly selected precincts in each of the counties 17 — yup, that’s seventeen — legislative districts.
