Voters in the small town of Pacific dumped controversial Mayor Cy Sun on Tuesday night, according to initial results in a rare recall election.

Those favoring recall were leading by more than a 2-to-1 ratio in early returns, with 836 residents voting yes and 405 voting no, according to King County Elections.

While the 1,242 counted ballots represented just 42 percent of registered Pacific voters, it was more than the number of votes cast in the 2011 mayoral election, which first gave Sun an unlikely victory.
