The final counts were tallied this week and in one of the closest races in recent memory, Miguel Gutierrez won the Shelton City Council 7 race over George W. Blush.  After the first count on election night Blush had a lead but in the subsequent counts Gutierrez took the lead and held onto it.  The final total was Gutierrez with 728 votes (49.59%) and Blush with 723 votes (49.25%). This close of a race automatically triggers a recount, that will happen on November 30, 2021.

In Mason County there was another close race that has triggered a recount, the North Mason School Board Director 5 Race between Arla Shephard Bull and Michael Curtin. Shephard Bull has 2,283 votes and Curtin has 2,261 votes.  This recount will happen on December 1, 2021.
