It's official: Jenny Durkan and Cary Moon will face off in this fall's election to be Seattle's next mayor.
In the final primary election results certified today, urban planner Cary Moon took second place with 17.6 percent of the vote. Former U.S. attorney Jenny Durkan won first with 27.9 percent.
Educator and attorney Nikkita Oliver took third with about 17 percent. Since the primary election two weeks ago, Oliver's campaign has been chasing down challenged ballots in an attempt to catch up to Moon. In the final results, Oliver was 1,170 votes behind Moon.
Today was the last day to resolve challenged or missing signatures. According to King County Elections, 2,479 signature challenges remained unresolved.
Oliver will host a press conference at 4:30 today. To trigger an automatic recount, Oliver would have had to come within 2,000 votes and .5 percent of Moon. Unless Oliver announces her campaign will pay for a voluntary recount, it's over.
A debate between Moon and Durkan, sponsored by Seattle CityClub, KING 5, KUOW and GeekWire, has been scheduled for October 24 at Starbucks Support Center.
