This is the final weekend before the Nov. 7 City Council election on Tuesday.
Voting has been underway since Oct. 20. We’re reposting links to endorsements, recommendations, candidate questionnaires and evaluations by various groups.
Sammamish Comment will be working Election Night, posting initial results as soon as possible after King County Elections posts (advertised for about 8:15pm, but it’s not unusual to be late).
The County updates the results daily, except weekends and Thanksgiving. So will The Comment, as long as any results are too close to call. We will post the final results Nov. 28 and follow up with a precinct analysis.
Typically, Election Night results are within a point or two of the final tally. Also typically, the vote spreads are enough to project winners on Election Night.
Filings for candidates for the November election ended Friday. There are races other than those for Sammamish City Council of local interest.
King County Council
As expected, incumbent Kathy Lambert filed for reelection to the District 3 seat of the King County Council. Sammamish is part of District 3.
Former Sammamish Mayor Tom Vance in March filed the necessary paperwork with the Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) to challenge Lambert, but in the end, he did not file the required documents to become a candidate.
