Election 2019: On day 2, no change in city council, school board races

There was little change in the Lynnwood City Council and Edmonds School Board races after the second day of voting results were released by the Snohomish County Elections Office Wednesday, Nov. 7.

Former Lynnwood City Councilmember Jim Smith still leads the race for the council’s vacant Position 4 seat. As of Wednesday Smith had 61.50% of the votes counted so far — or 2,155. His opponent, former councilmember Van AuBuchon,  trailed with 1,324 votes, or 37.79%.

Position 5 candidate Julieta Altamirano-Crosby also maintained her lead Lynnwood’s second vacant council seat. In the latest returns released Wednesday, Altmirano-Crosby had 1,964 votes (55.73%) while opponent David Schirle had 1544 votes, or 43.81%.

Position 6 incumbent George Hurst also led the race against opponent Nick Coelho with 60.48% of the vote (2,100 votes). Coelho currently has 1,355 votes or 39.03%.

Position 7 incumbent Shannon Session had 62.63% of the vote count released Wednesday, for a total of 2,187 votes. Fellow councilmember Shirley Sutton, who chose to run against Sessions for Position 7 instead of defending her Position 4 seat, earned 36.86% of the vote (1,287 votes total).

In races for Edmonds School District Board of Directors, all three candidates who were in the lead Tuesday — incumbents Carin Chase and Gary Noble, and Nancy Katims, running for an open seat — continued Wednesday to maintain a significant edge over their opponents.
