Based on unofficial general election results Tuesday evening, Washington residents overwhelmingly voted for former Vice President Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris over sitting President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, while Gov. Jay Inslee has declared victory over challenger Loren Culp, thus securing his third term.

A measure requiring public schools provide students with comprehensive sexual health education with parental approval has also passed.

In the Pierce County races, Republican Amy Cruver defeated Republican Joe Zaichkin in the Pierce County Council District 3 seat. She replaces her former boss Councilman Jim McCune, who will become the state representative in Legislative District 2. In turn, McCune replaces state Sen. Randi Becker, who decided not to run again. Ed Troyer will become the new Pierce County sheriff after decisive general election night results. Bruce Dammeier is likely to return as Pierce County executive. He currently leads over challenger Larry Seaquist.
