Little change in second round of results

King County Elections updated its tallies just after 10 PM, demonstrating its intent to stick to its schedule for periodic updates of returns. Not much has changed with the addition of what is supposed to be about 20% of votes cast at the polls.

However, Alec Fisken climbed over the 42% threshold, and Bill Bryant slipped below the 30% mark - which is a very encouraging trend.

The county says it tabulated "all absentee and mail ballots ready for tabulation, 120,664 total, and will resume processing mail ballots tomorrow. The rate of mail ballots to date is approximately 86 percent of the absentee ballots received for the same time period in the September 2005 primary."
