Aug. 5 primary ballot will be short

South Snohomish County voters will have a short ballot for the Aug. 5 primary election.

Ballots in Brier, Edmonds, Lynnwood, Mountlake Terrace, Woodway and nearby unincorporated areas will be so short, Snohomish County Elections Manager Garth Fell says, that everything on South County ballots will fit in a single column of one ballot page.

It’s because no jurisdictions in South Snohomish County have offered ballot measures for August and because no judicial or other non-partisan offices in the area have more than two candidates.

The only items on local primary ballots will be partisan contests for Congress, the state legislature, county executive and county prosecuting attorney.

The top two vote getters for each position on the primary ballot, regardless of party, qualify for the November general-election ballot.

Fell said Friday that no place in the county will have a ballot that voters need to turn over.

Here are positions and candidates on local primary ballots. Asterisk denotes incumbent.
