Ballots for the Aug. 4 primary and special election are due Aug. 4. Big names Rep. Pramila Jayapal and Gov. Jay Inslee respectively are running for reelection, and both are facing numerous Democrat, Republican and third-party challengers. Closer to home, representing the 34th legislative district and looking for votes, Reps. Eileen Cody and Joe Fitzgibbon are running unopposed.
