u 2019 Washington General Election, Nov. 5
Spokane voters gave a big win to Tim Eyman’s latest anti-tax initiative strictly limiting vehicle registration fees to $30 a year, according to election results Tuesday.
An election official in Pennsylvania didn’t think anything of the absentee ballot application until he saw the out-of-this-world voting location. The New Castle News reports that the application to Lawrence County’s voter services department listed the location as “International Space Station, low Earth orbit.”
Nadine Woodward was winning the race for Spokane mayor Tuesday night, while voters approved a preemptive ban on a Spokane income tax, gave the legislature broad powers in case of a catastrophe and Tim Eyman may have scored a vehicle registration fee victory.
In the first call of the night, Ben Stuckart has conceded the race for Spokane Mayor to Nadine Woodward.
Analysis: Candidates for Spokane’s mayor have taken confusing, but understandable postures. So does either one have the advantage?
Tuesday’s election features a candidate running pretty much as the incumbent mayor, though he isn’t the incumbent mayor, against an opponent who for the most part concedes that she’s running against the incumbent mayor, though he is not.
Realtors dump more than $620,000 to influence Spokane elections, but not all agents like the group’s new spending

While spending in Spokane elections have hit a record breaking $1 million, Spokane Valley’s election spending hasn’t surpassed $120,000, which is slightly above what candidates normally spend.
Fairfield Town Councilwoman Jamie Paden is facing a challenge from Mark Matherly as she seeks to keep the position she was appointed to last year after it was vacated by a council member who moved. Paden said she started attending City Council meetings soon after she moved to Fairfield three years ago because she wanted to be involved in her new community.
The tax on the November ballot would increase property taxes by 26 cents per $1,000 in assessed home value, which works out to an estimated $4.23 per month for a $300,000 home.
