Seeing ones: Today's vote count

Spokane County tallied 11,111 move ballots Friday from the Nov. 2 election. An unusual looking number that didn't create any unusual twists in the standings.

Republican challenger Al French leads Democratic County Commissioner Bonnie Mager by about 1,100 votes.

Republican challenger Rob Chase leads Democratic County Treasurer Skip Chilberg by about 1,000 votes.

Former State Rep. John Ahern, a Republican, leads Rep. John Driscoll, a Democrat, by about 1,500 votes.


After Republican Dino Rossi conceded the race to Sen. Patty Murray on Thursday night, the one remaining statewide race yet to be decided is a state Supreme Court seat.

Incumbent Justice Richard Sanders currently leads former Appeals Court Judge Charlie Wiggins by just under 10,000 votes out of nearly 1.6 million counted so far.
