Voters in the 36th District appear to have given overwhelming approval to the incumbents in the 2010 Primary Election. With the most recent numbers released Tuesday evening by the Washington Secretary of State, all three state legislators from our district are way ahead in the polls.
State Senator Jeanne Kohl-Welles currently has 82.77 percent of the votes while her challenger Leslie Klein has 17.23 percent. In position 2 for State Representative from the 36th District, Mary Lou Dickerson has 79.51 percent of the votes to challenger Jill England who has 20.49 percent. Reuven Carlyle, who is unopposed has received 100 percent of the votes for State Representative, Position 1.
In Washington’s Top 2 Primary, the top two vote getters will move on to the General Election on November 2. You can find all the election results here. The numbers will continue to change as more ballots are counted. According to the Secretary of State’s website, “By law, September 1, 2010 is the last day for county canvassing boards to certify results; September 7, 2010 is the last day for the Office of the Secretary of State to certify Primary returns.”

What's a moderate to do….?
That's too bad. I was hoping for some new blood.
They're good reps. Happy to vote them back in.
It was kinda funny to see Reuven out campaigning at the farmers market on Sunday, but he seems to really like just talking to constituents even when he gets harangued by some crank, so good for him!
Reuven Carlyle is the best of the bunch. It's great to see him actively campaigning even while running unopposed; unlike some other legislators, he doesn't seem to take his position for granted.
I know that for the Supreme Court races, getting more than 50% of the primary vote means you've won the office already; does anyone know if that applies to other offices in our primary?
