What Ever Happened to Lynn Smith?

This morning I noticed that the total votes cast in District 8 (as reported at DenverGov) crept up from 6227 (last night) to 6312. Apparently, votes are still being counted.

But there are no votes listed for write-in candidate Lynn Smith. I saw a few of her yard signs so I assume that there must have been at least a few votes. Have the write-ins not yet been counted?

In 2003, an uncontested Wedgeworth got 7225 votes out of a total of 7399. Are there 1000 fewer voters now in District 8?

Please comment if you have any info.
