+ The Olympian: Registered voters having their ballots accepted by Tuesday: 19.8% of Yelm’s 5,107 registered voters, from the official Yelm 2020 census population of 10,617.

+ Key take-aways:

  1. 19.8% of 5,107 registered voters in Yelm = 1,011 votes to-date in a city of 10,000+

2. Voters saw through DePinto’s opponent’s lack of experience, and as a retiring councilor’s wife.

3. 850 voters cast a ballot for Yelm Mayor to-date in a city of 10,000+

4. Voters clearly saw the conflict of interest and had an issue with the Chamber’s Executive Director running for council seat position 5.
