UPDATE, 8:30 p.m.: King County Executive Dow Constantine was elected to a second term tonight, leading Alan Lobdell 78 percent to 22 percent in tonight’s initial returns.

ORIGINAL POST: King County voters today will decide whether to re-elect County Executive Dow Constantine or replace him with tea party candidate Alan Lobdell.

Constantine’s first four years in office have not been controversial, as he has worked mostly internally to reform how the county is managed. Lobdell raised little money and had few specific criticisms of Constantine’s first term.
