There’s a primary election coming up, and it’s super huge. On the ballot: City council, mayor, King County Executive, Port commission, school board – basically everybody who runs our lives. Big time.
Here are the basics, but if you have questions, let us know. And if you know somebody who needs help (we all know those folks), send them this link. Let’s do this!
How and when do I vote?
-You have to mail your ballot by August 18th, otherwise it won’t count. Make sure you stamp and sign it too!
-It’s a mail-in ballot, which means you should have received it at your house (or wherever you’re registered) already. If you haven’t seen your ballot, contact the Secretary of State to figure out why, and to make sure you can vote. The phone number to call is 1-800-448-4881.
Who do I vote for?
Well, that’s up to you, naturally, but here are some good resources to get a handle on this year’s races.

Remember: Send in your ballot in by August 18th!
