With final count, here’s where primary vote results stand in Whatcom County

Tribune

Whatcom County’s top-two primary results will be certified Wednesday – a final count Tuesday did not change the leaders in the races.

Voter turnout was 31 percent, with 32,681 ballots counted.

Todd Donovan and Amy Glasser will face off in County Council District 2, North Bellingham, and Rebecca Boonstra will face Tyler Byrd in District 3, Foothills, in the Nov. 7 general election. Only voters who live in the district will elect district representatives.

If Donovan, who holds the current District 1, position B, is elected to the new district, the council would appoint a replacement for an at-large post that would be up with the November 2018 election. The remaining one-year term of office for that seat would be completed by a person elected from any district.

In Bellingham, incumbent Roxanne Murphy will face Eric Bostrom for the City Council at-large seat.

For Port Commission, incumbent Dan Robbins will face Michael Shepard for District 1. Ken Bell will face Barry Wenger for District 2. Voters in all districts will elect candidates in the general election.
