The unofficial election results from Tuesday’s General Election show a close race for Shelton City Commission and a new Port of Shelton Commissioner. Also Fire levies are passing but the Pioneer School District bond and the Port of Grapeview levy lid lift are coming up short.
Ballots for the General Election need to be returned to the Mason County Auditor’s Office or dropped in a ballot drop box by 8 PM tonight, or in today’s mail.
