Election results might be elusive as today — Election Day — draws to a close, but candidates will join supporters for some good cheer after the ballot deadline passes. Follow The Issaquah Press tonight, as reporters dart to candidate gatherings — and a few victory parties — and await election results.

Join reporters Warren Kagarise and Chantelle Lusebrink as they check in with City Council and school board candidates, live via Twitter. Join them @wkagarise and @clusebrink for candidate interviews, election analysis and a behind-the-scenes look at the end of the monthslong campaign.

King County Elections will post a batch of results at 8:15 p.m. If the tallies are close, candidates and voters will be left waiting until the elections office releases another round at 4:30 p.m. Nov. 4.

Follow along as our reporters check in with City Council candidates Maureen McCarry and Joan Probala, and Tola Marts and Nathan Perea, as well as school board hopefuls Marnie Maraldo and Wright Noel.

Check out our main Twitter account @issaquahpress for election night dispatches, too. Look for unofficial results, and reactions from candidates and voters. And, as Election Day turns to night, check back for details about winners, losers and, maybe, unresolved races. Expect to see information about the fate of the county Open Space Amendment, as well as the polarizing Initiative 1033 and Referendum 71 ballot measures.

We want to hear from Issaquah and school district voters. Send us a tweet @issaquahpress with your election predictions, and observations about the candidates and city, county and state issues.

In the meantime, look back on the campaign season. Learn what makes the candidates tick and find out how county and state ballot issues could change the way local government works here.

    You can mail ballots up to the last mail pick today or drop them off at special dropoff places. Here’s the official King County Elections link to the King County and Seattle drop off locations.

    And don’t forget to vote NO on Initiative 1033 – Tim Eyman’s budget freeze initiative that would transfer tax dollars collected from everyone just to benefit property owners. It’s a wealth transfer scheme that mostly benefits large property owners and shifts the tax burden onto low and middle income taxpayers.
