The Election is in the Mail… Day 14

So two weeks after the election, and today finally marks a turning point for King County. It is the first day since the primary where the number of ballots received in one day dropped below the margin of victory for Christine Gregiore in 2004.  That margin of victor was officially 133 votes. Today, the election department only received 41 new ballots. Incidentally, the first machine recount gave Dino Rossi a 42 vote victory.

With just 1/3rd of the voters voting in the primary, I expect that the general election could get awful messy again this year. But what do I know, I just spent 2003 and early 2004 predicting the train wreck that became the 2004 Governor’s debacle election.
