Based on the number of ballots coming in today and yesterday, the King County Elections office is now expecting over 71 percent voter participation in this election—an upward revision from its earlier prediction of 68 percent voter participation.
As of this evening, the county has received 762,000 ballots (or, about 35,000 more ballots than were expected under the 68-percent voter participation scenario).
That's good news for democracy (DEMOCRACY!) and also big news for vote counting nerds. Tight, still-undecided races this could have a significant impact on: Murray-Rossi, Sanders-Wiggins, and Larsen-Koster.
