Support grows for Spokane EMS levy in second day of counting

Voters who cast ballots later in the election cycle that ended Tuesday were more likely to support the EMS levy on the ballot in Spokane and less likely in Spokane County Fire District No. 10.

Not that it matters too much: We already knew that both measures passed after the first round of counting on Tuesday.

After 3,500 more ballots were counted on Wednesday, support crept up in Spokane from 66.8 percent to 67.1 percent. It fell in District 10, which is surrounded by Airway Heights, from 69.3 percent to 69.1 percent.

Spokane County estimates that only 200 ballots more will be counted. That won’t happen until the day before results are certified on May 12.

Turnout for the election was just over 40 percent.

Out of the nearly 44,000 people who voted in Spokane, 23 people left their ballots blank. Four people voted yes and no, an act that disqualifies the ballot.

It’s in the mail: EMS levy ballots

Spokane County Elections office says they mailed out about 113,000 ballots today to Spokane City voters, and Fire District 10 voters. Both groups are voting on an EMS levy.

Election is April 27. If you don’t get a ballot by April 16, call 477-2320 for a replacement.

You can mail it back up through April 27, or save a stamp and deposit it at a drop-off location. A list of drop off locations is inside the blog.
