Washington’s Top-Two Primary system means there are some races being decided now, during the Primary, instead of in November’s General Election.
If you are registered to vote, you should have received your ballot in the mail by now.
If you are not yet registered to vote, you can still vote in the Primary. You must register in-person by Aug 9. Go to the Thurston County Elections Office at 2000 Lakeridge Drive S.W., Olympia, WA 98502-6090.
Get your ballot in by August 17.
There’s a handy drop-box in the parking lot of the Griffin Fire Station. It closes by 8 PM on Election Day. Click here for more area drop-box locations.
If you fail to register to vote by Aug 9, you can still vote in November’s General Election, if you register by October 25.
