Numbers change, but results the same in primary election

Marysville City Council challenger Mark James increased his lead over incumbent Donna Wright as more ballots were counted Wednesday.

It looks like they will be facing off in the Nov. 7 general election.

In the race for Marysville School Board, the numbers changed but little else. Incumbent Bruce Larson still leads with 42 percent of the vote, compared with 37 percent for challenger Vanessa Edwards.

The Maryville Emergency Medical Services levy lost a little bit of its lead – 55 percent in favor and 45 percent against. Only a 50 percent majority is needed to pass.

In Fire District 21 in Arlington, Ken Johnson and Eric Nordstrom are likely to move on.

For Snohomish County Council Position 1, returnee Nate Nehring increased his lead over Democrat Ray Miller of Marysville.

The county sent out almost 460,000 ballots. About 110,000 have been counted, about 24 percent. Ballots postmarked by Aug. 1 will be counted through Aug. 14. The election will be certified Aug. 15.
