County turnout nearing 16 percent

Spokane County turnout — OK, turn-in if you prefer — is nearing 16 percent after this morning’s ballot sort.

The county had its heaviest day last Tuesday, when it got more than 11,000 ballots in the mail. The Tuesday after the first weekend ballots are in voters’ hands is a fairly typical peak day because folks usually get the ballots just before or on the weekend. That’s probably because the most dilligent and those who have already made up their minds on candidates and issues mark their ballots and send them back. Since last Tuesday, the daily count has totaled about 6,000 ballots per day.

Ballots must be postmarked or dropped in a pickup box by 8 p.m. Aug. 17 (next Tuesday). For a list of boxes, go inside the blog.
