After additional results were released Thursday afternoon, Ryan Calkins extended his lead in the Seattle Port Commission’s No. 1 race with 73.87% of the vote.
But in other races: a plot twist.
Hamdi Mohamed, who initially lagged behind incumbent Stephanie Bowman in the No. 3 race earlier this week, led Thursday with 50.93% of the vote. Mohamed rose by 9,610 votes.
Toshiko Grace Hasegawa, who was behind the incumbent Peter Steinbrück in the No. 4 race earlier this week and climbed 275 votes on Wednesday, has increased her lead. On Thursday, she was in the lead with 51.38% of the vote, an increase of 13,623 votes.
About a quarter of the votes remain, based on the estimated number of returned King County ballots.
Mohamed and Hasegawa have emphasized the importance of the environment and fairness in their campaigns. Mohamed advises King Doe County Executive Director Constantine on policy matters, with a focus on equity and economic development. Hasegawa is the executive director of the Washington State Commission for the Americas in the Asia-Pacific region.
The counting of ballots will continue throughout the week.
