Special Election Results

SPOKANE, Wash. - The Spokane County Elections Office has finished counting 77,138 ballots and the preliminary results from today's special elections show mixed support from voters, except for the school districts. 

According to Elections Manager Mike McLaughlin, the City of Spokane's Proposition 1 (evidence property room and animal control facility), has failed to achieve the required super majority of 60%.  Meanwhile, the city's second proposition (charter changes) received considerable voter support beyond the required simple majority.

The big winners this evening are the school districts.  The Spokane School District 81 Proposition 1 (Educational Program Maintenance and Operation Replacement Levy) appears to be passing with a 65% majority.  Proposition 2 (General Obligation Bonds) also appears to be passing with a 62% majority so far.

Ballots for the school districts of Nine Mile Falls, Reardan-Edwall, Deer Park, and Riverside as well as Rosalia Park District are tabulated in both Spokane County, and neighboring counties that are served by the districts.

Last month, the Elections Office mailed ballots to 188,516 registered voters and 78,145 ballots have been returned to date.  Staff will continue to tabulate ballots as they arrive in the mail and the next update on the election results will be Wednesday night at around 5:00 p.m.
