Speedy voters return early ballots for Aug. 17 election

Early voters had returned more than 1,000 ballots by Friday for the all-mail primary election.

King County Elections mailed ballots to voters Wednesday — some people returned the ballots on the same day they received them.

“We have already received about 1,500 ballots back to elections,” Elections Director Sherril Huff said in a news release. “We are projecting a total county return of about 45 percent for this election.”

Ballots must be postmarked by Aug. 17, or dropped into a drop box by 8 p.m. on Election Day. Find drop box locations here. Track ballots online at the office’s website.

The early returns mean a greater percentage of ballots can be counted for the initial results report on election night.
