Ballots are on their way.
Snohomish County Elections will mail ballots today to more than 332,000 voters for the Aug. 6 primary. The local voters pamphlets will be mailed one per household to areas where there is a primary race or issue.
This year’s primary features all partisan races that are up for election and any nonpartisan race with three or more candidates. This includes three County Council positions as well as a number of city, school district, fire district, and sewer district positions.
Ballot measures for Monroe, Fire District 4, Fire District 28, and the Arlington Transportation Benefit District are also up for voter approval.
The primary is not countywide.
Voters in Edmonds, Everett and Tulalip as well as some of the surrounding areas have no races to vote on in the primary and will not receive a ballot.
Snohomish County conducts all of its elections entirely by mail. There are no polling locations. All eligible voters will be mailed a ballot to their current residential or mailing address. Return ballots must be postmarked no later than Aug. 6.
