King County Council Member Kathy Lambert was reelected to a fourth, four-year term on Nov. 7, snaring 57.21% of the vote across District 3, which stretches from Bellevue to Snoqualmie pass and from North Bend on the south to the Snohomish County line.
But in Sammamish, Lambert captured only 52.49% of the vote against John Murphy, a Democrat, from North Bend. Lambert is a Republican. The race is non-partisan, but parties lined up behind both candidates.
Lambert trailed all Sammamish City Council candidates and the winner in the Sammamish portion of the 45th Legislative District.
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.
