Updates from Seattle Times Opinion writers out on the town on election night

ORIGINAL POST 8:22 p.m.:

Hope everyone got their ballots in on time, as the 8 p.m. deadline just passed and ballots should be released here shortly.

Here are live results (50 to 60 percent of the final vote will be reflected tonight, according to the Secretary of State), and news columnist Danny Westneat is live-blogging about the results as they come in.

Opinion writer Thanh Tan is moving between election events. She stopped first at the Initiative 594 event at the Edgewater Hotel. The Seattle Times editorial board supported I-594 over competing measure I-591. I-594 would expand background checks on all gun sales. Thanh has been posting to Twitter and Instagram from the event:

On Instagram: #KingCounty Exec #DowConstantine speaks to hopeful #I594 supporters. More people die from gun violence than from car accidents, he says. #waelex

On Instagram: Dispatch from #I594 event. Sandy and Lonnie Phillips are visiting from San Antonio, TX. Their daughter was one of the victims gunned down in #Aurora, CO. They’ve called 10,000 WA voters since arriving Oct. 20 to advocate for #background checks. “It’s not a slippery slope. It’s a first step toward sanity.” #waelex

UPDATE 10 p.m.:

Seattle Times editorials on gun control Initiative 594 and prekindergarten Proposition 1B were just posted. And, Thanh left the Proposition 1B event a bit ago:

On Instagram: #Seattle @mayoredmurray & state Rep. Ruth Kagi embrace as #Prop1B leads w/67% of vote. #waelex #prek #preschool
