Both state House seats in the 1st Legislative District were up for election this year. The 1st district covers parts of King and Snohomish counties, including Bothell, Mountlake Terrace and Kirkland.

Incumbent state Rep. Derek Stanford (D-Bothell) ran against Josh Colver, a Republican from Bothell, to retain position 1. Stanford was leading with 69 percent of the vote to Colver’s 31 percent in initial returns.

Debra Blodgett, chair of the Snohomish County Republican Party, challenged position 2 incumbent and Democrat Rep. Shelley Kloba, a former Kirkland City councilmember. Kloba was leading 64 percent to 36 percent as of election night.

All results are according to the secretary of state’s website.
