State Rep. Drew Hansen will be returning to Olympia if Tuesday night's vote tally stays constant in subsequent counts.
The Democrat incumbent was leading Republican challenger James M. Olsen in the first vote count on Nov. 6 in the District 23 House race for Position 2. Hansen was in front with 59 percent of the vote, while Olsen had 40 percent.
Hansen's advantage was much improved over his showing in the Primary Election, where Hansen finished first with 52 percent of the vote in a three-way race. Olsen picked up 40 percent of the vote in the primary.
