If you want to check up-to-the-minute election results, there’s an app for that.
Less than a week before the Nov. 2 election, the Secretary of State’s Office has unveiled an iPhone app to provide statewide results. Download the free app here or from the App Store. Search for “WA State Election Results.”
Unofficial results should start to be published after 8 p.m. Election Day and refreshed as county elections offices update tabulations.
The app could prove useful as elections offices count ballots for hot U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives and state legislative races, plus a bevy of ballot measures.
The state has about 3.6 million registered voters. Secretary of State Sam Reed, the top elections official, estimates 66 percent turnout — the highest participation in a midterm election since 1970. King County Elections predicts 67 percent turnout in areas outside of Seattle.
