After additional results were released Thursday afternoon, Ryan Calkins widened his lead in the race for Position No. 1 for the Port of Seattle Commission, with 73.87% of the vote.
In the other races, though: a plot reversal.
Hamdi Mohamed, who initially trailed incumbent Stephanie Bowman in the race for Position No. 3 earlier this week, led on Thursday with 50.93% of the vote. Mohamed was up by 9,610 votes.
Toshiko Grace Hasegawa — who initially trailed incumbent Peter Steinbrueck earlier in the week in the race for Position No. 4 and was up by 275 votes Wednesday — widened her lead. On Thursday, she led with 51.38% of the vote, up by 13,623 votes.
Roughly one quarter of votes are left to be counted, based on King County’s estimated number of ballots that were returned.
Mohamed and Hasegawa both emphasized the environment and equity in their campaigns. Mohamed advises King County Executive Dow Constantine on policy, with a focus on equity and economic development. Hasegawa is executive director of the Washington State Commission on Asian Pacific American Affairs.
Ballots will continue to be counted throughout the week.
This article has been updated to reflect that one-quarter of votes remain to be counted.
