Election kicks off


Washington General Election is getting underway. About 65,000 military and overseas ballots went out Saturday, many of them sent electronically, and those voters can begin voting as soon as they receive their ballots.

The other 3.8 million registered voters will be getting ballots and Voters’ Pamphlets by this time next month. The 18-day voting period kicks off Oct. 17. Ballots may be returned by mail, in person, or by using a county-supplied dropbox. Postmark deadline is Election Day, Nov. 4; dropboxes may be used until 8 p.m. Election Day. Results will be available online.

Deadline for online and mail-in voter registration is Oct. 6. To register online, go to mkh46ya.

Secretary of State Kim Wyman is forecasting a 62 percent voter participation.
