Although King County has yet to certify its results, precinct voting numbers are available for cities and unincorporated areas, just in case you want to know how your home town voted.
It shouldn’t surprise anyone in Enumclaw to learn the city leaned heavily Republican, though maybe not as much as some people think.
According to precinct numbers — which were only calculated for inside city limits — only just about 67.5 percent of registered voters in Enumclaw actually cast a ballot. This is far behind the estimated 86 percent of King County turning out to vote, according to the county’s election result webpage on Nov. 11, but way higher than the estimated 30 percent of Enumclawers who voted in the recent primary.
It appears the city became more red as those who cast their vote went down the ballot.
According to county numbers, President Donald Trump took 52 percent of the vote, with President-elect Joe Biden taking 48 percent. However, only 253 votes separated the two candidates.
The Libertarian Party nominee, Jo Jorgensen, was able to secure 102 votes this year.
Washington governor-hopeful Loren Culp found more support in the ‘Claw than the president, with the Republican enjoying 56 percent of the local vote. County numbers show the presumed winner of the race, Gov. Jay Inslee, with just 43 percent of the local vote, having earned roughly 750 less ballots than his opponent.
Enumclaw also clearly lent Rep. Drew Stokesbary and soon-to-be Rep. Eric Robertson its support as well in the Legislative District 31 races.
Stokesbary garnered 63.5 percent of the vote, with his opponent Katie Young just 36.5 percent, whereas Robertson outpaced his opponent Thomas Clark at 62.5 percent of the vote.
Support for repealing Referendum 90, also known as Senate Bill 5395 or Washington’s sex-ed bill, fell in the middle of the road; approximately 56 percent of Enumclaw voters wanted to repeal the bill, whereas about 44 percent of supported it, a difference of about 653 votes.
