King County Elections mailed ballots on July 13 to more than 1.2 million registered voters for the Aug. 2 Primary Election.

“Primary Elections are exciting because they determine who gets to move on to the General Election,” said Julie Wise, Director of King County Elections. “Make sure your voice gets heard and vote on the issues and candidates that impact your community.”

This Primary Election includes candidates for federal, state, superior court and state supreme court offices as well as six ballot measures. Voters are encouraged to read and follow directions on their ballots, sign the return envelope, and get ballots back before the Aug. 2 election day deadline.

King County Elections has forecast a turnout of 37 percent for this election.
