Ballots coming in

With ballots for Washington state’s top two primary streaming in to county elections offices, state officials are unveiling a new Web site to give voters even more help with their ballot and registration.

Secretary of State Sam Reed said voters seem to prefer the new voting system, in which they can vote for any candidate in each race, to the “Pick a Party” primary used 2004 and 2006. In those years, voters could cast a ballot that had only one of the major party’s candidates on it.
