18 votes: Hand recount nears for Morrell-Zeiger race

The 25th district legislative race between Democratic Rep. Dawn Morrell and Republican Hans Zeiger moved to a razor close 18-vote margin after ballot counting this afternoon in Tacoma. That's well within the range for a mandatory recount by hand. The 42nd district race was also heading toward a machine recount with Democratic Rep. Kelli Linville of Bellingham trailing Republican Vincent Buys by 241 votes. That one was awaiting another vote count this evening in Whatcom County.
