The election must be certified on February 18, but still a few levies to be decided. In Benton County, a total of 5,000 votes remain to be counted, these 5,000 are dispersed among the various races of the county. For example, it doesn’t mean there’s 5K in Kennewick or Richland. they are scattered.
PASCO CERTAIN TO PASS – LEFT HANDFULL TO COUNT
Not much going on in Franklin County. With just 157 votes left to count, Pasco is pushing its poll by a margin of almost ten percent. Large positive margins for North Franklin and other small schools.
OTHELLO CONTINUES TO TRAIL BADLY
For Franklin Othello County levies 60-39%, for Adams County the margin was about 57 no 43% yes. Again, with only a handful of votes remaining, the pick will fail mathematically.
KENNEWICK LEVY OPERATIONS INCHES CLOSER
With 5,000 votes remaining, Kennewick’s large operational draw dropped to less than 600 votes. On Wednesday evening, there were 7,002 no’s against 6,600 yes’s. A difference of 402. Percentage 51.48% no to 48.52% yes. The technology tax continues to barely pass, its margin is 51.09% yes to 48.08 no.
FINLEY EDGES AT YES – BARELY
Finley’s levy now has 311 yes votes to 307 no… four votes. 50.32 to 49.68 percent. It’s possible that if this margin ends this close, it could trigger a potential recount.
