While we wait for election results I thought I'd throw a few tidbits out there. As of today, there have been 114,332 ballots returned in Spokane County. Just over 21,000 of those belong to Spokane Valley voters, which accounts for 42.9 percent of the registered voters in the city. Other jurisdictions are tallying higher percentages. Millwood is at 45.32 percent. Fire District 8, which has a levy on the ballot, is at 48.28 percent and Fire District 13, which is trying to pass a bond, has 47.81 percent. Liberty Lake is trailing behind at 41.97 percent. A complete list is available here.
However, all those numbers are likely to go up a bit as ballots postmarked by today straggle in over the next few days. Now we just have to wait and see how everyone voted.
