Nearly 1.6 million Washington voters in 21 counties will receive a ballot this week for the April special election, which ends April 22.

Some 35 ballot measures will be considered by voters in these counties. The most publicized measure is King County’s Proposition 1, which would authorize a sales tax increase of one-tenth of a cent and an annual $60 vehicle fee (in addition to the state car tab fee) to help pay for transportation improvements. Marysville voters will decide the other transportation measure this month.

Out of the 35 propositions, 17 are bond measures. They include two library bond measures, one for Camano Island, the other for Spokane Valley. Spokane Valley voters also will decide on the formation of a new library capital facilities area. Tacoma voters will be asked to weigh in on a neighborhoods parks and zoo improvements measure. Other areas have 14 levy elections.

About 41 percent of all registered voters in Washington will receive a ballot for this month’s election.
