As it turns out, yesterday’s Chelan County ballot count update had no affect on the outcome of any of the tight races from Tuesday’s initial ballot count.

Chelan County Auditor, Skip Moore, said the additional 3 thousand or so ballots, county-wide- brought the voter turnout percentage up from the 25% turnout calculated on Tuesday…

The updated ballot count gives some closure to those candidates who were in races too tight to call after the first round of ballots were counted.

For the City of Chelan Council seats, Tim Hollingsworth walks away the leader, ousting long time council member Cameron Skip Morehouse 644 votes to 574.

Ty Witt also won a seat on council against challenger Rachael Goldie 594 votes to 558.

And Mary Signorelli was able to hold on to her lead and has been re-elected to her seat on the Lake Chelan Community Hospital Board of Commissioners with 1,513 votes to Jeremy Jake’s 1,475.

Auditor Moore says the ballots are put through a process that ensures every single ballot is counted and that nothing is missed…
