OLYMPIA — Your election calendar might not say Washington State Primary until Aug. 7, but in reality, the election has already begun.
Some 50,000 ballots have been sent to deployed service members and other state residents living overseas. Some went by regular mail, others went by e-mail, depending on what the voter requested.
All of the state's 39 counties sent out some ballots, the state Elections Division said today. Spokane County sent out 3,722, which was the fifth highest in the state.
Ballots to the rest of the state's voters will be mailed out in mid-July, and have to be dropped off or postmarked by Aug. 7.
And just a friendly reminder: If you are eligible to vote, but aren't registered, you have until July 9 to register online. If you aren't registered, you can start the process by clicking here. If you can't remember if you're registered at your current address, that link will help you find that out, too.
OLYMPIA — The state Elections Division has expanded its help to register voters and get them information about the candidates and ballot issues they face on this year's ballot to include three languages besides English.
A voter who isn't fluent in English but is in one of those languages can enter their first and last name and birthdate (or nombre/apellido.fecha de nacimiento, ten goi/ten ho/ngay sinh, or in traditional Chinese characters that aren't available on the computer that handles this blog) and see all the details on who's on his or her ballot.
It's the work of the division's minority language coordinator, Cristina Labra, and it's up and running in advance of the deadline for registering online to vote in the Aug. 7 primary, which is coming up on July 9.
