King County planning to report results from 556,000 ballots tonight

Barbara Ramey,  a spokeswoman for King County Elections, says her office is planning to report results from 556,000 ballots tonight.

That would be 48 percent of the 1.16 million registered voters in the county and about 55 percent of the expected overall turnout.

Statewide, about 60 percent of ballots are expected to be counted tonight.

Democrats at an election night party at The Westin Seattle said they’re preparing to wait until later in the week to know who won the state’s nationally-watched governor’s race between Democrat Jay Inslee and Republican Rob McKenna.
