SEATAC -- An initiative that seeks to establish a $15 minimum wage for many workers in SeaTac is leading by 46 votes.
After Saturday's ballot drop, the measure was passing with 2,936 "yes" votes compared to 2,890 "no" votes.
On election night, the initiative was leading by a 261-vote margin -- a decent gap in a race that's likely to draw maybe 6,000 total votes.
Washington has the nation's highest state minimum wage at $9.19 an hour; the federal minimum wage is $7.25 per hour.
