Expect only one vote count tonight

Today is Washington's primary election.

If you want to vote, you must cast your ballot by 8 p.m. by dropping it in a ballot drop box, or in a mailbox that is certain to be collected in time to get postmarked with today's date.

Spokane County Elections Manager Mike McLaughlin said he expects to release only one vote count tonight. That should happen around 8:15 p.m. Stay tuned to for results.

As of Monday, the county had received only 17.6 percent of the ballots that were mailed county-wide. In the city of Spokane, that figure was about 19 percent (21,453 of 113,080 ballots). Turnout in Spokane Valley as of Monday stood at 16.6 percent.
