+ Key take-aways:

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

+ 1,251 Yelm voters cast a vote for Mayor, highest for any Yelm government seat.

+ 1,251 votes is 25% of Yelm’s 5,107 registered voters, in a city of over 10,000, from the official Yelm 2020 census population of 10,617.

+ Voters clearly saw the conflict of interest and had an issue with the Chamber’s Executive Director running for council seat position 5. Brian Hess is handily defeating Line Roy.

  • 5,000 estimated ballots left to count.
