Two vote totals tonight in Spokane County

Spokane County will release two rounds of vote totals tonight, one shortly after voting closes at 8 p.m., and another between 10:30 and 11 p.m.

Old election hands can remember when the county had poll site voting and would release up to a dozen updates on election night. After switching to all-mail balloting, the county has had election nights where it released one tally, and others when it released two.

Other than keeping people in suspense, what this means is that folks at the election parties will have a reason to stick around and have a new round of results to either cheer or boo.
