While many eyes are turned to the presidential election, early results in key races in the 11th Legislative District are also in.

For the 11th district, which includes parts of South Seattle, Renton, Tukwila and Kent, two positions for state representative are on the line. State Senator Bob Hasegawa (D) is running unopposed.

These are the results as of election night, with more ballots expected to be counted throughout the week:

  • For Representative Pos. 1, David Hackney (D) has a lead at 61.35% with 30,388 votes, against Zack Hudgins (D) with 17,633 votes.
  • For Representative Pos. 2, Steve Bergquist (D) has a lead with 72.46% a 40,131 votes, against Sean Atchison (R) with 15,154 votes.

King County has seen record-breaking election turnout during this presidential year, and elections expected they would be able to post results for approximately 1 million ballots tonight.

Elections staff said it’s possible the turnout could exceed 90% this year.

“We are prepared to pick up hundreds of thousands more ballots from drop boxes and we are ready to process every eligible ballot that is returned to us on time, including those with the on-time Nov. 3 postmark per state law,” according to elections staff earlier this week.
