Pierce County Assessor-Treasurer race too close to call
The Pierce County Assessor-Treasurer race is far too close to call at this point. Dale Washam has a small lead in first choices, but has only 24.67% of the first choices. Barbara Gelman has a very small lead over Washam, Jan Shabro and Terry Lee after a preliminary run of the Ranked Choice Voting allocation of second and third choices.
Due to the large number of votes yet to be counted, any one of these four candidates could still win this race. The allocation of second and third choices will be crucial in this race. The next tabulation of second and third choices will be on Friday afternoon. We expect this race to be too close to call until at least that point.
