Washington voter turnout could break state records

From staff reports

More than 2.2 million ballots have already been cast in Washington state, putting voter turnout on a record-breaking pace.

With half of all ballots mailed to residents already cast, state officials predict the turnout could top the 2008 record of 84.61 percent.

Results won’t begin to be posted until after 8 p.m. Most of the state’s 39 counties will offer at least initial reports before 8:30 p.m., according to the secretary of state’s office.

Updates will be posted throughout the week as more ballots are counted.

Drop-box votes and ballots mailed Monday and today will be counted and and the results released by the end of the day Friday, according the officials.
