Mike Brasfield is the new Jefferson County sheriff.
He topped Kristen Anderson-Post by 345 votes out of 12,535 cast in the race after election officials tallied late-arriving mail-in ballots Friday.
Other Jefferson County candidates solidified their Election Night victories.
The Fire District No. 1 (Chimacum) levy failed.
“It looks like it’s going to be a done deal,” said Brasfield, who stopped at the Jefferson County Auditor’s Office on Friday to check the vote.
Only about 100 more mail-in ballots are expected, and they will be counted Wednesday.
