From staff reports

Two days after polls closed, only a few local races in the November 2018 election cycle remained too close to call.

With about 60,000 votes left to count in Spokane County as of Thursday evening, the race for county assessor remained tight, with Leonard Christian ahead of fellow Republican Tom Konis by just 994 votes.

Jenny Graham – who is facing Dave Wilson in the race for an open House seat in Spokane’s 6th Legislative District – lengthened her narrow lead slightly, to 409 votes from 295 a day earlier.

Spokane Proposition 1, which sought approval for a bond to improve and expand Spokane libraries, remained where it has been since election night, with Yes votes on the bond at around 63 percent of the total. The measure requires at least 60 percent of the vote to pass.
