County certifies election results

Published November 28, 2018 / by Steve Berentson

Skagit County general election 2018 tabulations are complete and certified as of Tuesday, November 27. Election turnout in Skagit County was about 73 percent, with 55,583 ballots cast. According to the Seattle Times, Washington State’s voter turnout fell just short of setting a midterm record. With all votes counted and the totals certified, 71.83 percent of registered voters returned ballots for the Nov. 6 general election. That was two hundredths of a percentage point below the midterm high mark of 71.85 percent set in 1970. Among those elected this year were new 40th District State Representative Debra Lekanoff, pictured here at a candidates forum sponsored by the Anacortes Chamber of Commerce.

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
