Simple majority takes the lead!

After days of a slow and steady increase in the Yes on SJR 4204 vote, the constitutional amendment to allow simple majorities to approve school levies is now passing statewide by a small margin - 50.2307% to 49.7693%, or 756,963 votes in favor to 750,011 against.

King County has been a driving force behind SJR 4204's turnaround, where the measure is passing 58% to 41%. The Elections Division has counted a total of 307,693 ballots as of this evening, with 25,983 mail in ballots counted today alone.

Other counties voting in favor of 4204 include San Juan, Jefferson, Whitman, Thurston, Whatcom, Snohomish, and Spokane. And, oddly enough, the measure is almost passing in Asotin County.
