King County Elections will mail ballots July 15 for the Aug. 4 primary election.

Voters’ pamphlets are mailed separately and may arrive on a different day than ballots. Voters may also check MyVoterGuide online for a customized voters’ pamphlet.

Voters should read and follow directions on their ballots, sign the return envelope, and get ballots back before the Aug. 4 election day deadline. Mailed ballots need a first-class stamp; postage is now 49 cents. Voters also have 24 locations to return ballots without a stamp by 8 p.m. Aug. 4, including permanent drop-box locations, scheduled ballot drop-off vans and Accessible Voting Centers.

In Issaquah, you can drop off ballots 24 hours a day at City Hall, 130 E. Sunset Way, from July 16 to Aug. 4. In Sammamish, a drop van will be at City Hall, 801 228th Ave. S.E., from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Aug. 1 and 3 and from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Election Day.

Watch your mailbox for primary election ballots

July 17, 2014

NEW — 6 a.m. July 17, 2014

King County Elections has mailed ballots for the Aug. 5 primary election. Voters’ pamphlets are mailed separately and may arrive on a different day than ballots.

Voters may also get a customized voters’ pamphlet online.

There are a total of 119 candidates and 52 offices on the ballot, ranging from U.S. Representative to Washington state legislators, King County prosecuting attorney and district court judges.

Voters do not need to make a selection in every race for votes to count. Voters may leave a race blank or “write in” the name of a candidate for a race on the ballot. They shouldn’t write “none of the above” or a frivolous name; that increases processing costs.

Skyline grad uses art to pay it forward

Karan Sunil’s infatuation with art began at an early age, and he’s developed his gifts to the point where one of the most prestigious schools in the country wants him to study there.

Sunil, who graduated from Skyline High School in June, will soon be headed to the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where he plans to work toward an art production career in film or television.
