More ballots from Tuesday's general election will be counted this afternoon in the Yakima County Auditors office. The Yakima County Auditors office reports a 32 percent turnout, higher than the predicted 25 percent turnout.
The count of ballots could make a difference in one at least one Yakima City Council race. The race for Yakima City Council District 1 between Kenton Gartrell and Eliana Macias. Gartrell continues to lead the race with 241 votes against Macias with 179 votes. Auditor Charles Ross says traditionally the ballots counted after election day usually follow the same trends but he says there could always be a change in numbers. The ballots will be counted every afternoon until the election is certified and the counting is officially over on November 26.
