Harris has increased her lead by about 200 more votes.
end of update
It would seem the establishment candidates are in trouble.
District 3 (with 21.61% of the vote counted)
Lauren McGuire 5,420 (47.79%)
Jill Geary 5,116 (45.11%)
It's a 300+ vote difference in a district that should have been a stronghold for McGuire. Both women now have to play to a much wider audience.
District 6 (with 18.39% of the vote counted)
Leslie Harris 4,493 (46.0%)
Marty McLaren 3,803 (38.93%)
That's nearly 700 votes more for Harris and again, in the district where McLaren should have been strongest.
One interesting aside is that while District 6 has nearly 4,000 more registered voters, District 3 had the much larger vote count. Maybe it was distracting for West Seattle with all those City Council candidates.
Next vote drop is scheduled for 4:30 pm tomorrow (includes votes cast at the accessible voting centers).
