One error in the article, the minimum wage increase in SeaTac Washington has neither sailed through nor actually passed. As of 14 November COB it was ahead by some fifty votes, with more to be counted. Certification is not until about 25 November. (Washington uses only mail in ballots, which only have to be postmarked by COB of election day, so they can actually be received up to about two weeks after the election). SeaTac has about 6,000 votes to be counted overall.
