MOUNT VERNON — An updated count from Tuesday’s election shows little has changed for local races.

The Skagit County Auditor’s Office has counted another 3,636 votes since Tuesday. It released the new totals Thursday afternoon.

The county estimates 19,500 ballots from Skagit County voters still need to be counted, 4,500 more than it estimated Tuesday.

The next count is expected to be released Monday.

The biggest change in any of the races on the Skagit County ballot is a 1 percentage point increase in incumbent state Sen. Barbara Bailey’s lead against Angie Homola in Legislative District 10. Bailey now leads 56 percent to 44 percent.

In the race between Eron Berg and Kevin Loy for Skagit Public Utility District commissioner, results have not changed. Berg still leads with 58 percent of the vote.

Similarly, David Svaren still leads Laura Riquelme 51 percent to 49 percent in the race for Skagit County Superior Court Judge.
