Results Of The General Election 2021

After lots of campaigning and two candidate forums, the city council and mayoral election is finally behind voters.

One area in this election that remains unclear involves Billy Costello and his race for City Council Position 1. Though he was on the ballot, it was discovered that he was not eligible under Washington State law to run until he had lived in Deer Park at least a year.

Results are updated when a county reports new tabulation results. Election results are certified by each county on November 23rd, 2021. The Secretary of State certifies final results by December 2nd, 2021.

All results posted before certification are unofficial.
