Original Story:

Republican, incumbent state senator, has a solid lead in early primary returns in the 41st Washington Legislative District, at 57.78 percent of the votes counted so far, a 15-point lead over Democratic challenger who currently has 42 percent of the vote.

For the district's State Representative Position 1, incumbent Marcie Maxwell (D-Renton) leads her Republican challenger, Tim Eaves, of Issaquah, 56.41 percent to 43.49 percent.

Democrat Judy Clibborn is running unopposed for Position 2.

Voter turnout is looking lower than King County Republicans had hoped for so far, said Kirby Wilbur, Washington State Republican Party chairman. So far, of 87,003 registered voters in the 41st District, King County has received and counted 19,167 votes, or about 22 percent. The deadline to postmark or turn in ballots was today; Patch will update results in the coming days.
