The latest round of election results from the Nov. 7 general election posted on Monday showed no change in race outcomes.

The Clark County Elections Office has counted 88,138 ballots and had an estimated 450 ballots remaining to be processed.

With more than 330,000 registered voters eligible to vote, Monday’s tally put voter turnout at 26.52 percent. If voter turnout remains unchanged, it will mean the 2023 general election had the lowest voter turnout for off-year elections in the last 20 years.

While off-year elections don’t attract voters in large numbers like presidential and midterm elections can, voter turnout for off-year elections usually averages around 35 percent.

Elections Director Cathie Garber initially estimated turnout for the election would be closer to the average, around 36 percent.

This year’s election has seen few surprises or shake-ups. One outcome that did change was the Woodland City Council Position 5 race between DeeAnna Holland and Gabe Huston. Holland’s early lead slipped away on Friday.

Huston continues to lead with 767 votes, or 50.3 percent of votes cast, compared to Holland’s 754 votes, or 49.4 percent.

Updated election results for Cowlitz County, which are included in Woodland’s race totals, were scheduled to be posted Monday evening.

The next updated elections results for Clark County will be posted Thursday afternoon.
