OAK HARBOR — The results of a recount of a race in the 10th Legislative District were certified on Tuesday.
After the mandatory recount, there was no change in the outcome.
Clyde Shavers, of Oak Harbor, narrowly beat incumbent state Rep. Greg Gilday, R-Camano Island, by 216 votes, flipping the House seat for Democrats. The win earns him a two-year term representing all of Island County and portions of north Snohomish and south Skagit counties.
State law required a machine recount because the vote margin was less than 2,000 votes and less than 0.5%. The margin between the two candidates was .28%.
Elections staff of the three counties in the district began the recount process Monday. The respective canvassing boards met Tuesday to certify the recount results.
