Winter and Keightley Move On While Write-In Candidates Wait

KNDO

In a crowded race, voters gave thumbs up to Brian Winter and Jim Keightley to send to the general election for the race for Yakima County Sheriff.

Winter, a Yakima County Sheriff grabbed 49 percent of the vote Keightley, an Ellensburg Police Captain had 22 percent of primary votes.

Two other races saw late write-in campaigns and now Yakima county election officials will be busy researching the names that voters put down.

Michael Scott Brumback was a write-in candidate for the seat held by Rep. Norm Johnson. Curtis Vangstad was a write-in for the county commissioner seat held by Rand Elliot.

County Elections Manager Kathy Fisher says they have some work to do before they will know if either candidate was able to gain the one percent of the vote needed to move on to the general election. She says there are a lot of names they will have to research.

Fisher says they hope to have an answer by the end of the week. She says they will be able to determine if Vangstad moves forward and they will be working with other counties in the 14th legislative district to determine of Brumback was able to gain the one percent of the voted needed district wide to move on to the general election.
