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