Big splits on liquor privatization
Posted by Jim Brunner
Drilling down deeper into the newly released precinct-level data for King, Pierce and Snohomish Counties, you can see support for I-1100 was strongest on the Eastside - it won in places like Bellevue, Sammamish and Woodinville.
The highest 'yes' vote in King County came from Clyde Hill, where 61 percent of voters wanted more convenience in stocking their liquor cabinets.
But the measure lost in Seattle (55 percent 'no' vote), Tacoma, Everett, Auburn, Kent, Shoreline and other urban/suburban cities - though there were pockets of support in most places.
