All over but the shouting?

Maybe not. The state Republican Party has filed a massive public-records request with King County election officials. The party, it's attorney says, is concerned about possible "irregularities, errors or perhaps worse in the conduct of this election...So that we may begin gathering information to allow us to decide how to proceed, and how best to investigate our concerns, we are requesting copies of the following records..."

Among them: a list of all King County voters who voted in the Nov. 2 election, including whose vote was counted and whose wasn't.

Any citizen has until 10 days after Thursday's certification to challenge the election result.

"Stalling won't work," said GOP chairman Chris Vance. "King County will not be allowed to run out the clock on this election."

Short takes and breaking news from the Washington Legislature and the state capital.
