Incumbent Lynnwood mayor holds on to second place in primary vote

Incumbent Lynnwood Mayor Don Gough appeared to be surviving a tight four-way primary election as more results from the Tuesday primary were released Wednesday afternoon.

Gough continued to hold second place over City Councilman Mark Smith. Gough slightly expanded his lead over Smith, seeing his vote total grow to 25.88 percent to Smith's 24.27 percent. That's about a half percent than the first totals.

Meanwhile, political newcomer Nicola Smith, an Edmonds Community College administrator, widened her leading percentage to 28.16 from the 27.25 percent she had in the Tuesday count.

City Councilman Loren Simmonds remained in fourth place with 20.22 percent, compared to 20.94 Tuesday.

The top two vote-getters in the primary advance to the general election.

Through Wednesday, Lynnwood voters had a ballot-return rate of 24.33 percent.

Snohomish County elections officials plan to release more results Thursday afternoon.
