King County Elections mailed ballots on Wednesday to more than 1.2 million registered voters for the Aug. 2 Primary Election.
“Primary Elections are exciting because they determine who gets to move on to the General Election,” said Julie Wise, Director of King County Elections. “Make sure your voice gets heard and vote on the issues and candidates that impact your community.”
This Primary Election includes candidates for federal, state, superior court and state supreme court offices as well as six ballot measures. Voters are encouraged to read and follow directions on their ballots, sign the return envelope, and get ballots back before the Aug. 2 election day deadline.
King County Elections has forecast a turnout of 37 percent of registered voters.
Mailed ballots need a first-class stamp. Voters also have several locations to return ballots without a stamp by 8 p.m. on Aug. 2, including 29 drop-box locations and the Bellevue, Renton and Seattle Accessible Voting Centers. Ballots can be returned any time after they are received – the earlier the better.
Citizens not yet registered to vote in Washington State have until July 25 at 4:30 p.m. to register in-person at King County Elections offices to vote in the Primary Election:
King County Elections Headquarters, 919 SW Grady Way, Renton, WA 98057. Open weekdays 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Voters who don’t receive a ballot by July 18 or who have questions should call King County Elections at 206-296-8683.
