MORE-- Since the Spokane Auditor's web site is being cranky, we'll go with this report from KXLY regarding the Spokane mayor's race.
If the current results hold, Spokane Mayor Dennis Hession will be challenged by city councilperson Mary Verner for the city's top job in November.

The top two vote-getters on Tuesday will go on to face off in the general election in November. The votes counted on Tuesday won’t become official for 15 days.

With over 98 percent of the vote counted, Hession had 33.6 percent of the vote. Verner was close behind in second with 32.4 percent. City councilman Al French was running third with 29 percent of the vote.
The Spokesman-Review also has a brief story.
