Election Day is Aug. 4

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.

Call King County Elections to obtain a replacement ballot if your original ballot packet is lost, spoiled or destroyed at 206-296-VOTE (8683). You can update your registration online at votewa.gov — you’ll need a Washington State Driver License or ID. Make sure you register online by July 27 in order to vote in the Aug. 4 election.
