How did your neighbors vote in the Seattle mayoral race?
Bruce Harrell is now Seattle's mayor-elect. But where in the city did he draw more votes versus his opponent Lorena González?
Seattle-based political consultant Ben Anderstone created a few maps of election night results. Note that more votes were counted in the days following election night, but the end results didn't change much during that time.
Harrell's campaign was business friendly, and he promised to move Seattle more towards the middle on issues like public safety and homelessness.
"All in all, Harrell did better among affluent voters," Anderstone said.
But Anderstone said Harrell's support on election night extended beyond rich neighborhoods.
“Very low income voters too, in Rainier Valley, kind of mixed-income neighborhoods, like NewHolley or Rainier Vista or High Point," Anderstone said.
Harrell's opponent Lorena Gonzalez conceded the race last week. But ballots continue to be counted. As of 4 p.m. Monday, November 9, Harrell led by around 18 percentage points.
And as of November 8, 55% of Seattle ballots were counted as returned.
