Quinn, Verhey lead Ritzville council races

Leaders far ahead of other candidates.

RITZVILLE — Jessica Quinn and Jen Verhey lead the races for two City Council seats at the end of the first day of counting in the Tuesday, Aug. 1 primary election.

Quinn has 41 votes, or 64.06%, in her bid to win the Ward No. 1 seat. That's more than double her nearest opponent, Dede Boyer with 15 votes, or 23.44%. in third place, David Dahill has 5 votes, or 7.81%.

Three ballots contained write-in candidates and 10 were under-votes, Adams County Auditor's Office election officials reported.

There are only 210 registered voters in Ward No. 1; late-arriving ballots have yet to be counted.
