Most of the races around Seattle will be tabulated by squirrel-eating gnomes, hired by King County elections. They will post results tonight at 8:15 p.m. over HERE. After that, no more results until tomorrow. But Katie Gilliam at King County Elections—who does not eat squirrels—thinks tonight's results will be fairly substantial. Of the projected 495,000 ballots they're expecting in the primary, tonight's announcement should reflect 230,000 of them. And that may be enough—no way to know for sure—to call certain races.

Statewide results—like the titillating Supreme Court races—will be posted by the Secretary of State's office HERE. They're expecting 1.36 million ballots to be returned for the primary election; of those, about half will be posted tonight. However, those results will trickle in after being taken from all the counties and aggregated in Olympia, according to Patty Murphy, the state's voting systems specialist. "Counties post results anywhere from 8:05 p.m. to 8:45 p.m.," says Murphy. Additional results will trickle in throughout the night from Pierce County, where they still do some old-fangled thing called poll voting.
