The latest ballot count Friday afternoon narrowed the gap in a close Legislative race in Southwest Washington’s 19th Legislative District, but results of other local races didn’t change.

District 19 Rep. Jim Walsh’s lead over Democratic challenger Erin Frasier shrank Friday, from 630 to 536 votes. The Aberdeen Republican had 50.5 percent of the vote in the five-county race and Frasier, a Pe Ell resident, had 49.5 percent.

Walsh maintained his lead in Cowlitz County, bringing in 50.2 percent of the vote here, 13,401 votes to Frasier’s 13,291. Though narrow, the gap still does not qualify for an automatic recount.

Walsh is seeking a second two-year term in the five-county district.

Election results will become official after canvassing is completed later this month. Jeremy Heffernan, of the county elections office, said Friday’s count was the last large batch of uncounted ballots. The office has about 500 more on-hand to count, with more expected to trickle in early next week, he said.
