Updated: Unofficial general election results: Biden defeats Trump, Inslee to return for third term

Based on unofficial general election results, 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. According to national news sources, Biden is projected to become the 46th president of the United States after apparently securing the needed electoral college votes of at least 270 on Saturday. In Washington, Gov. Jay Inslee declared victory over challenger Loren Culp, thus securing his third term.

In addition, a measure requiring public schools provide students with comprehensive sexual health education with parental approval has also passed.

In Pierce County races, Republican Amy Cruver defeated Republican Joe Zaichkin to secure 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, a Republican, replaces state Sen. Randi Becker, who decided not to run again. Ed Troyer will become the new Pierce County sheriff after decisive general election results. Bruce Dammeier will return as Pierce County executive after holding off challenger Larry Seaquist.

According to the Pierce County Auditor's website, as of 3:30 p.m. Friday, 458,216 votes had been counted to date, with an estimated 5,000 remaining. Voter turnout was estimated at 80.79 percent.
