Seattle School Board Update: Sue Peters is ahead

horse race2

In spite of the record-breaking amount of money that was poured into Suzanne Estey’s campaign by a moneyed few and DFER who want to see the corporatization of our public schools through charter schools, online learning enterprises and schools staffed by the cheap labor of Teach for America, Sue Peters has pulled ahead in the race.

As it stands at the time of this posting, the official count is:

Sue Peters
51.78% – 46949 votes

Suzanne Dale Estey
47.90% – 43430 votes

To follow the election results, there is an official posting at 4:30 each day at King County Election Data.

    1. Now you’re talking, Dora! ;-)

      It’s looking pretty likely for Sue Peters. I guess we’ll be close to 100% of the ballots being tabulated by 4:30 today.

      (My understanding is that approximately 66% were counted last night. Do you know what percentage of the total vote has been accounted for?)

      Also, whatever happened to learning who the winner was—90% of the time—before midnight on Election Day? Why aren’t we getting a continual feed of vote tallies the way we have in the past? How is this new system supposed to work? Any idea?

      Warmest regards,
      SN
