SEATTLE - New ballots are having little impact on Washington's race for governor.
Thousands of more votes were tallied Thursday, but Democrat Jay Inslee still held about 51 percent of the vote compared to 49 percent for Republican Rob McKenna.
Officials still have hundreds of thousands of votes to count. View local election results.
Roughly three-quarters of the ballots officials expect to receive have been counted so far.
Though McKenna is showing no signs of conceding, confident of victory, Inslee said Wednesday he is beginning to create a transition team to help him prepare for taking office in January.
