SeaTac $15 minimum wage measure holds slim lead

SEATTLE — A measure in SeaTac that would give some workers at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport a $15 per hour minimum wage is hanging on to its slim lead.

Tuesday’s vote drop showed that Proposition 1 has a 52-vote lead. That’s a three vote increase from the previous day.

Supporters of the proposal say they expect the opposition to ask for a recount. Under election laws, the group that requests a recount must pay for it.

Yes! For SeaTac spokeswoman Heather Weiner says that King County Elections has accepted affidavits for 50 ballots that had signature issues.

Weiner’s goal now is to find as many ballots to weather a possible recount.
