On to the General Election...
Clarifying for all the people asking me about this:
In Washington, the top two vote getters in the Primary advance to the General election, regardless of party. And there’s a General election regardless of percentages in the primary.
So I will face Tyler Vega again on November 2.
Unlike a lot of other local races which are by District in the primary and whole county in the General, the City races are city-wide for both primary and general. So the November election will be the exact same voters with only two candidates instead of three.
Voter turnout will likely be much higher in the general election than the primary (this is normal), with more races on the ballot, including the other contested City Council seat. Only races with more than two candidates appear on the Primary ballot. The November ballot will be bigger, with races for Port Commissioner, Hospital Commissioner, school board and more.
