Election Night: Community City too close to call; Yes leads by 292 (51%)

Election Night results were posted by King County at about 8:15pm and Proposition 1, the Advisory Vote for the Sammamish Community Center, results are 51% Yes and 49% No (6,806 to 6,514).

I’m calling this race as too close to call tonight. The margin is close enough to make this call. In every Sammamish election since incorporation, the final vote count hasn’t varied more than 1%-2%, so tonight’s margin of 2% is one that can change as votes come in.

Election Night turnout was not shown on King County’s new format. This turnout typically doubles by the final tally in normal elections. In presidential years, Sammamish turnout is between 81% and 85%. The Secretary of State’s office predicts a statewide turnout of 81% and the King County Elections chief predicts an 87% turnout for the county.

Because Proposition 1 is well down-ballot, I don’t expect this vote total to match King County’s by several percentage points.

King County will update results daily except weekends and holidays here.
