UPDATED state election results in key races

UPDATED (Nov. 10 at 10 a.m.) — The election results below have been updated. Next update in King County (5th LD) is today at 4 p.m., and in Pierce County (28th LD) is today at 4:30 p.m.

(Nov. 4, 2020, at 6 p.m.) — After another day of ballot counting, things certainly trended the right way for the labor-endorsed candidates at the top of the ticket: Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. As millions more votes were counted Wednesday, Biden/Harris opened up at 3.5 million lead in total votes over Trump/Pence and the Democratic nominees are on the verge of having the 270 Electoral College votes needed to secure the presidency.

What about labor-endorsed candidates further down the ticket in Washington state? Are they also faring better as more votes are counted? Not so much. Almost without exception, labor-backed candidates in tight races lost some ground in the latest counts. Candidates in the lead saw those leads shrink, and those trailing fell a little bit further behind. Not so much that we have new leaders in any of those races as of Wednesday night, but unless later counts reverse that downward trend, some could watch their victory margins slip away.

Following are Washington state election results in some key races as of 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 4. The next major update will be at 4 p.m. on Thursday. Check Vote.WA.gov for the latest results.
