The Bellingham Herald

Updated primary election results released Wednesday, Aug. 5, by the Whatcom County Auditor’s Office and the Washington Secretary of State’s Office offer a clearer picture of the candidates who’ll be on the November general election ballot.

In Whatcom County’s two contested judicial races, Evan Jones and James Erb were leading Lisa Keeler for Superior Court judge position 2 and Judge David Freeman was leading challengers Carl Munson and Jim Nelson for position 4.

In Whatcom County’s only other contested primary races, both incumbent House members who represent Whatcom County were leading their challengers.

Washington uses a “top two” primary system, meaning that the two candidates with the most votes advance to the Nov. 3 general election, regardless of party affiliation.
