General Election Recount Final Results

King County Elections certified the November 2015 Recount today. The recount results confirmed that Lisa Herbold has been elected to the Seattle City Council District No. 1 race in West Seattle. The 39 vote difference that mandated a recount did not change after all the votes were recounted last week.

There have been 49 recounts since 2001, including this one, and changes in the winner have been rare,” said Sherril Huff, director of King County Elections. “We’ve had no changes as a result of a recount since we started administering vote by mail in 2009.”

The final results are available on the Elections website.
