Primary election results are in

King County Elections release preliminary primary election results Tuesday night.

In Kirkland, only City Council Position No. 7 saw a primary.

Jon Pascal leads with 69 percent, or little more than 7,200 votes, followed by Uzma Butte with 20 percent, or about 2,000 votes, according to preliminary results. So far, Imran Peerbhai received the least amount of votes, about 10 percent, according to preliminary results. Position No. 7 is currently held by Doreen Marchione, who did not seek re-election this year.

Pascal and Butte will likely advance to the general election.

About 21 percent of the registered voters, that is 11,474 out of 55,482, voted in this primary election.

In the Lake Washington School District Director District No. 3 race, Cassandra Sage gathered 52 percent, or little more than 11,300 votes, and Anita Damjanovic earned nearly 32 percent, or almost 6,900 votes, according to preliminary results. Christian Cahua, who earlier announced he would be dropping out of the race, garnered nearly 16 percent, or 3,455 votes, according to preliminary results.

Sage and Damjanovic will advance to the general election.

About 22 percent of the registered voters, about 25,160 out of more than 114,800, turned in their ballots for the school board race.

This was the only Lake Washington School District position to see a primary.

In the 45th Legislative District, Manka Dhingra (D) and Jinyoung Lee Englund (R) are leading for the state senator seat currently held by Dino Rossi. Dhingra earned 50.5 percent, followed by Englund at 42.6 percent and Parker Harris with 6.9 percent, according to preliminary results. Nearly 26 percent of registered voters cast their ballots this primary.
