It looks like all four incumbents on the Everett City Council will be holding onto their offices. Early returns show Shannon Affholter leading Jackie Minchew 67% to 32%. Brenda Stonecipher has a six point lead over challenger Scott Bader 52% to 46%. Ron Gipson looks to be on the way to his fifth term as an Everett City Council member as he’s topping June Robinson 59% to 41% and Drew Nielsen is ahead of challenger Erv Hoglund 53% to 46%. In the Port of Everett race challenger Tom Stiger has an 11% advantage over incumbent Mark Wolken 55% to 44%. In the race to fill the open seat on the Everett School Board, Pam LeSesne has a comfortable lead of 61% to 39% over Mary Ann Elbert. In the Snohomish County races, the incumbents are all winning including Aaron Reardon, Brian Sullivan, Stephanie Wright and Cindy Portmann.

Snohomish County Auditor Carolyn Weikel is still sticking with her prediction for voter turn out. “We appear to still be on track to hit 52 percent”, said Weikel. She says tomorrow the staff will conduct a random audit of the count and will continue processing and tabulating ballots with an update online at 5pm. That process will be repeated on Thursday and Veterans Day with online updates set for 5pm each day.
