Incumbents on Snoqualmie City Council and King County Fire Protection District No. 38 led in early returns on Tuesday.
In Snoqualmie, Councilman Jeff Nichols had staked a large lead with 71 percent of votes counted to challenger Kevin Ostrem’s 29 percent. However, less than 30 percent of potential votes have been counted, and election officials estimate turnout as high as 52 percent.
Councilman Kingston Wall led challenger Terry Sorenson with 53.3 percent of votes counted so far.
In North Bend, Ryan Kolodejchuk and Piper Muio are locked in a close race for an open seat on City Council. Kolodejchuk led Muio by 16 votes.
Voters in Si View Metropolitan Parks District overwhelmingly backed two propositions to protect the district’s budget, which faced being cut in half next year due to declining property values.
