The biggest question mark after last night's first round of election results was what would happen in West Seattle's District 1, where Lisa Herbold and Shannon Braddock were in a close fight for a seat representing that district on the Seattle City Council. (Both are progressives, but Braddock is the more centrist of the two. Last night, Braddock was in the lead.)

Today's second round of results doesn't look good for Herbold. Braddock maintained the lead with 52.4 percent of the vote.

In line with that, most of the other races between moderates and lefties are still leaning toward the moderates. Unless something pretty huge happens over the next few days, the people ahead in the results below are likely to be your new Seattle City Council.

The latest results show current city council president Tim Burgess maintaining a safe 16 point lead over his challenger Jon Grant, despite conventional wisdom that later votes benefit progressives like Grant.

District 2 in Southeast Seattle was also close yesterday with incumbent Bruce Harrell ahead of his challenger Tammy Morales. Today, he held onto his lead, though there are still just 887 votes separating the two—virtually unchanged since yesterday.

Along with Harrell and Burgess, incumbents Sally Bagshaw, Kshama Sawant, and Mike O'Brien look safely headed back to city hall. (Sawant and O'Brien are both far-left members of the council, bucking the moderate trend, and both were expected to win their races.)

Below are the full results. Another count is expected later tonight. UPDATE: See below for the 7 p.m. count. After the latest count, 46,950 city ballots are left to be counted.
