Some 383,000 ballots have been mailed, and about 37 percent of voters are expected to participate, county elections manager Garth Fell said.
The number of returning ballots started out a little slow but picked up last week, Fell said.
Ballots must either be postmarked by Tuesday or returned to election drop boxes by 8 p.m.
The only districts that donít have ballot measures are Index, Stanwood and Arlington. Levies are approved with a simple majority; bond issues require 60 percent voter approval.
