Ballots sent to military and overseas voters
The state has sent out more than 50,000 primary election ballots to military and overseas voters from Washington.
The ballots were sent out by last Saturday, in compliance with the federal law that these voters be sent their ballots at least 45 days before Election Day. Some were sent by mail and others were emailed, the secretary of state’s office said Wednesday.
In Grays Harbor, 126 ballots were sent to military & overseas voters. In Pacific County, 96 ballots were sent out.
King County had the most military and overseas voters, with over 12,000 ballots sent out last week, followed by Pierce County, home to Joint Base Lewis McChord, where over 10,000 ballots were sent.
Ballots for the rest of the state’s voters will be mailed out mid-July. The primary election is Aug. 7.
