Print Article

EPHRATA — The majority of races from last Tuesday's general election are decided, but it appears as if a highly contested race for Moses Lake School Board will result in a recount.

The Grant County Auditor's Office reports there are only 30 ballots left to be counted, with the next ballot count scheduled for Nov. 20. In the race for Moses Lake School Board Director No. 4, MLSB President Kevin Donovan is currently trailing challenger Elliott Goodrich by 21 votes, 0.38 percent.

Washington election laws state a machine recount is required when the difference between the top two candidates is less than 2,000 votes and less than 0.50 percent of the total number of votes cast for both candidates.
