It's official, Steve Litzow is new state senator for the 41st District

The recount results for King County Legislative Dist. 41 State Senate seat have now been certified. Islander Steve Litzow retains his lead over incumbent Randy Gordon and wins the seat.

King County Elections this afternoon certified the results of the machine recount of the District 41 State Senator race between Steve Litzow and Randy Gordon. Litzow retained his lead and final results give him a 192 vote advantage. Official recount results will be posted by 5 p.m. on the King County Elections website.

Gordon received an additional two votes through the recount, which did not alter the outcome of the race. Litzow will serve out the last two years of Islander's Fred Jarrett who vacated the seat to join the King County Executive Office. Litzow will be up for reelection in fall of 2012.

This was the only recount for King County Elections following the General Election. The next election will be the February 8, 2011 special election.
